Half and Half is available in two different blends. One is for grass and the other is for plants.
Our Half and Half for Grass is composed of half Sand Hill soil and half soil booster (a mixture of leaf compost and food waste). The half and half for grass is a looser soil mixture when compared to the regular topsoil or the 2 to 4 mix. The Sand Hill soil is known for its looser, sandier quality. The custom blend comes ready to plant.
The Half and Half for Plants is composed of Sand Hill soil and a mixture of aged pine bark and soil booster (a leaf compost and food waste mixture). This custom blend is looser than the regular topsoil due to the nature of the Sand Hill soil. All custom blends are ready for use.

Half and Half for Grass
Half and Half for plants
When planting grass, the suggested depth of loose soil for a healthy root system is 6-8 inches. We recommend using 2-3 inches of Half and Half for grass incorporated into the top of the existing soil. Due to the nature of the mixture, using too much would cause the soil to be too loose for the root system.
When using Half and Half for plants it is best to incorporate some of the existing soil into the area you are planting. You need enough loose soil to accommodate the existing root system of your plant or shrub.
