If it isn't STA compost…..what is it???

Why do CalTrans, TXDOT, PennDOT, WSDOT and other agencies accept ONLY STA compost for their landscape projects?



Because they want a product that is tested and labeled just like any other high quality landscape product that they purchase!

 Use STA Compost to get better results & lower project costs!


  •  Use 2/3 LESS compost than topsoil, on most jobs


  • STA Compost is a manufactured, tested product, consistent from truckload to truckload


  • STA Compost is a recycled product, reducing the dependency on non-renewable resources


  • STA Compost contains levels of most essential nutrients, reducing the amount of chemical fertilizer you will need


  • STA Compost increases the moisture holding capacity of soil, reducing watering needs


  • STA Compost adds essential organic matter to soil, providing the ideal environment for beneficial soil microorganisms


  • STA Compost is a VERY versatile product suitable for a variety of uses, such as: general soil amending, erosion control, planting mixes, backfill mixes, turf topdressing, land reclamation, mulching and 'manufacturing' topsoil
