Thousands of tonnes of Ontario's leaves, yard clippings, and green bin organics are diverted from landfill sites and made into premium quality compost that is found in Home Gardener® and Natura® products. Thanks to you, the process comes full circle!

Beautiful lawns and gardens begin with healthy soil

Compost provides soils with beneficial organic matter and plant food for improved growth and greening. Organic matter that comes from compost may help the soil's ability to retain moisture during a drought. This organic matter is also a food source for earthworms. These inhabitants aerate the soil, and their castings are an immediate source of nutrients for lawn grass and garden plants.

All Treat Farms Limited, a family owned, 100% Canadian company in Arthur, Ontario, has been supplying Home Hardware with quality garden and potting soils for close to sixty years. As one of the largest licensed composters in Ontario, All Treat Farms has invested in the technology to efficiently convert the yard clippings you put to the curb into rich clean compost.

Compost is a sustainable resource
By using compost rather than sphagnum peat moss in Home Gardener products, the pressure to harvest sensitive wetlands, which is the source of sphagnum peat moss, is reduced.

Natura Pelletized Lawn Top Dressing

To improve the condition of lawn soil, apply Natura Lawn Top Dressing twice per year. Lawn Top Dressing is 100% pelletized compost and adds a significant amount of organic matter to lawn soil. It is especially effective for new housing developments where topsoil has been stripped away.

Home Gardener Seed + Feed + Compost Lawn Top Dressing.
This easy-to-spread Lawn Top Dressing is for starting a new lawn, over seeding established lawns, or for repairing bare spots.
Seed: The premium all-purpose grass seed is ideal for sunny to moderately shady areas. New grass appears in 5-7 days! The grass seed contains a fertilizer coating that adds enough weight to spread evenly without separating from the compost, and gives a boost to the young grass seedlings as they send roots down into the soil.
Feed: A starter fertilizer has been added to help the young grass plants green-up and establish quickly.
Compost: The pelletized compost ingredient is easy to spread and provides all the benefits listed above. Follow up with Home Gardener Lawn Top Dressing with Fertilizer 10-0-6 when the grass seed is well established; usually after the third cut.

What Fall Means to the Gardener in Me

What Fall Means to the Gardener in Me

This is a great time for gardeners. We still have 6 to 8 weeks to work outdoors on our lawns and gardens, and when it is over we get 6 months (or so) off to reflect on the results of the past season and dream about the one ahead.
