- what is screened loam and compost mixture
We have a new product this year, 50-50 Mix that is 50% all organic compost and 50% ½ inch screened loam. We created this mixture after many customer requests to mix the our loam and compost in our trucks to be mixed while dumping in previous years. The mixture is great for gardens and also for new lawns as the compost adds nutrients to the soil and helps to retain water.

We sell “Sun & Shade” mix
- when is the best time to plant grass seed
Before you plant you want to make sure the soil is 45-50 degrees 24 hours per day.
- what is minus crushed rock
Minus is a term used to describe the size of the rock. We have 6 inch minus (rip rap) crushed granite; it is screened with a 6 inch screen that allows for 6 inch or smaller to fall through. We also have a product we call Hard Pack which is ¾ minus crushed granite. It has ¾ crushed stone all the way down to fine dust.
- how much would a truck load of mulch cost
At PRO Landscape Supply we do not quote mulch by the truck load, because all trucks vary in size. We sell our mulch by the cubic yard (a much easier measurement system).
- how much is 10 yards of mulch
Great question; if you are asking price, it would depend on the mulch blend. In 2010 our prices range from $32 – $38 per yard. If you are asking about coverage, 10 yards at 3 inches deep would cover 1080 sq ft.
- what is garden loam mix
Different companies have different names for their products. If you were to call us and ask for a garden loam mix we would let you know about our 50-50 mix, 50% all organic compost and 50% ½ inch screened loam. The mixture is great for gardens and also for new lawns as the compost adds nutrients to the soil and helps with water retention.
- what is difference between 3/4 inch and 1/2 inch loam
The difference is the size of the screen used to sift the loam. A ¾ screen would allow anything ¾ of an inch or smaller to pass through the screen, and a ½ screen allows anything ½ inch or smaller to pass through. At PRO Landscape Supply we have and use a ½ screen and our screening plant is located in our Goffstown, NH yard.
