The Organic Superfood Jumpstart (OSJ) is a one-time application of an OMRI certified, premium pelletized organic compost. Yes, it has a smell, that's how you know it's working. The smell is short-lived. The benefits are not.
It contains minerals not found in regular fertilizer that replenish the soil with the nutrients lost over years of feeding grass and a process known as "leaching" where nutrients are naturally washed through the soil profile and out of the root zone.
Areas that have suffered previous damage can be slow to fill in or even accept new sod. An Organic Compost Superfood Jumpstart will increase the chances of success and speed that process up by giving the area everything it needs for a successful start/recovery in one application.
It helps release tied up calcium, lower soil pH, and increase the soil's ability to hold water. Also, the carbon-rich nature of the compost provides microbes with an ideal environment in which they will thrive.
The compost contains nutrient-rich carbon fertilizer that will produce a rich, deep color with long-lasting results. The rich carbohydrates provide a quick burst of energy to beneficial bacteria while multiple forms of carbon provide a sustainable food source for long-term biological activity.
