Top Selling Products
From selling horse manure out of a wagon to making the best compost and soil mixes in Central Texas, Organics “By Gosh” has always taken things that others threw away and turned them into great products that make our environment better than it was in the first place. Grandpa Gosh used to say, “It can be done, by gosh!”. The Gosh family motto stuck with our owner, Phil Gosh, his entire life.
We have plans to change the way people think about the ground they walk on and what they throw away. Organics “By Gosh” takes material that others see as “waste”, adding love, hard work, and creativity to turn them into soil and compost resources that make the earth a better place to live. It’s about treating people and our environment the right way. And that’s something that’s worth being done, “by gosh”!
The City of Austin has pledged to become Zero Waste by the year 2040. Zero Waste means that as a community we would divert 90-95% of everything that goes to the landfill by reducing, reusing, recycling, and repurposing these “waste” resources. The City of Austin knows that our community plays the key role in reaching these goals so they offer some awesome rebates for both residents and businesses who want to do their part to help Austin become more sustainable.
Austin has it all— except ideal soil for lawns.
The solution? Top dressing turf with compost. Whether done for new or established lawns, this method can help grass thrive in six key ways during the mild days of spring.
Adds soil nutrients
Compost– such as our Triple Power Compost – is rich in macro- and micronutrients that get released slowly as the organic matter present in the soil mix decays. Because compost nutrients are not highly soluble, they stay in the soil during rainstorms.
Improves organic matter levels
Top dressing with compost helps soil by adding life-giving organic matter, regardless of whether it’s applied before or after grass planting. This is important in areas where removing turf could lead to erosion.
Enhances soil structure
Adding compost topdressing to soil with significant clay content reduces surface crusting as well as compaction issues, which leads to better drainage.
Compost top dressing increases the ability of soil to hold water and reduces your water will. It helps fill the aquifer by allowing for greater infiltration of water into soil, even if it has not been aerated. This results in fewer problems with runoff, as might occur after a spring rain event.
Increases microbial activity
Because they play a crucial role in inhibiting plant pathogens and suppressing turf diseases, the microorganisms in compost help lawns thrive. Over time, repeated compost topdressing applications can reduce — or even eliminate — the need for chemical pesticides.
Compost top dressing benefits grass health. And healthier, denser grass has a far better ability to win out over weed invasions, which means less maintenance work for you
Austin is a special place with unique environmental needs. At Organics “By Gosh”, we believe in natural, all-local zero-waste solutions – like compost top dressing – to enhance the Central Texas landscape. And that’s an earth-friendly investment worth the effort, “by gosh!”
Let’s talk trash. No, not smack talk. Literal trash.
A common obstacle we face every day is the contamination unloaded at our yard alongside valuable wasted food resources. This is not only a nuisance and a hindrance to the composting process; it can also be a costly problem.
