Compost and Seed Services
Compost & Seed
Superior’s Compost Erosion Control Blanket combines nutrient-rich compost mixed with high-quality seed to create the perfect environment for quick vegetation establishment and slope stabilization.
Superior installs the compost, and then spreads it across the ground with either seed mixed in (thin top-dress application) or incorporates seed into the existing soil to build up the organic content of the soil. The stronger the organic content of the soil, the more erosion can be prevented.

Slinger / Conveyor
Superior Groundcover’s slinger fleet allows us to quickly install various types of aggregate and even compost with precision up to 70 feet from the truck.
Compost and Seed services are best installed in early fall. Early spring is also good, but early fall is most ideal.
