Whether you’ve identified seeding or sodding as the best approach for your yard, Full Circle is going to make things EASY. Who doesn’t like easy? While sowing seeds is typically cheaper, sodding typically gets you to a full, lush, attractive lawn quicker. So, whichever option you choose as more appealing, see below for some helpful tips (no tricks needed).
The Best Process to Seed Your Lawn (or Re-Seed)
Let’s get right to it:
1. Rake existing bare spots across entire desired coverage area
2. Get a seed spreader and spread those seeds
3. Spread 1/4 inch of Full Circle’s BOOST (crucial)
4. Watering newly sown seeds: Twice a day, 6 minutes per cycle. If possible, set morning timers to 8:00 AM and afternoon timers at 3:00 PM. Remember, you have to keep the seeds wet for 2 weeks. Then water normally.
Now, get your lawnmower tuned up because you’re about to be trimming your lawn in as little as 3 weeks.

Ornamental Kale with Full Circle Soils & Compost products is a great Xmas gift! Ornamental Kale will rock and roll through winter!
We know, we know. Kale is all over the menu these days. It’s hip, it’s healthy, but did you know it’s also pretty darn … pretty? Fact. That’s three reasons right there to consider giving some as a gift this holiday season!
No, not in a plastic grocery bag. We mean whole plants neatly anchored in their own containers. But these ample, rose-like leaves hued purple, silver and yellow aren’t just a pretty face (one which, by the way, they’ll still be making come springtime); they’re hardy! Kales will look nice and stand tall (up to 2 feet) in our dry Nevada cold as they color up your (or your happy gift recipient’s) patio, porch, entryway or garden.
Want to do it? Plant your kale in a pot or bucket with some good, wholesome SOAR, keep it in a sunny place, water it regularly and be sure to keep it happy with an every-other-week spritz of delicious PUNCH.
Forget the poinsettias. This holiday season, go with kale. (Because, at the very least, if you ever get sick of the plant, you can always turn it into salad.)
Looking for some great gifts for the special gardeners in your life? Why not win a whole wheelbarrow full of them! Enter our Holiday Giveaway contest right here!

Craig Witt, compost consultant, looking over food waste and organic waste brought to Full Circle Soils & Compost in Nevada
Reno-Tahoe businesses send a LOT of perfectly compostable stuff to landfills. In some cases, up to 35% of solid waste is organic material–everything from restaurant food scraps to yard trimmings–which could be recycled through composting.
We’re here to help your business, institution or organization benefit by doing just that.
Full Circle’s green waste diversion can help your business cut costs, appeal to consumers, gain competitive advantages against rivals and, ultimately, capitalize off of “going green.”
Does My Business Produce Green Waste? Probably!
The rule of our large-scale green thumb is this: if stuff is made out of something that used to be alive, we can probably take it and transform it into rich, ultra-productive compost.
For many businesses, that’s a lot of stuff. Such as …
- Leftovers and spoiled food
- Bread, grains and pasta
- Coffee grounds with paper filter
- Tea and tea bags
- Dairy, eggshells and eggs
- Fruit (pits and shells too) & Veggies
- Meat (including bones)
- Seafood (including shellfish)
Food Soiled Paper
- Coffee filters
- Greasy pizza boxes
- Paper products: cups and plates, ice cream containers, bags, napkins, tissues and towels, take-out boxes and containers
- Waxy paper milk and juice cartons
- Branches and brush
- Flowers and floral trimmings
- Leaves, grasses and weeds
- Tree trimmings
- Cotton balls and cotton swabs
- Animal products
- Vegetable wood crates
- Waxed cardboard and paper
Sound like a lot to sift through? Not for us! We’ve been doing it every day for over 20 years!
When you call us for green waste consulting, we’ll help you determine the what, how much and where of your own personalized green waste diversion program. It’s perfect for …

URGENT! Do this before mid-October if you want healthy, amazing lawns come springtime!
Winter likes to jump onto the scene with a combo of cold weather, short days and a general beating-and-a-half for our lawns. But with a little preparation now, you can reestablish your lawn before the cold kicks in, to ensure your turf stays strong and resilient through winter… and comes back lush, lavish and healthy in the spring!
Follow these simple steps to accomplish your very own Full Circle Fall Turf Reseed. And check out that photographic evidence… of reseed results in just 14 days–woohoo!
Step 1 – Rake
Use a heavy rake (metal) and rake out the native soil bare spot or areas in the turf that need more growth. This creates a shallow seed bed.
Step 2 – Spread
Spread 5 lbs of drought-tolerant turf grass seed for every 1,000 square feet over the bare spots or turf area that needs more growth.
Step 3 – BOOST
Spread 1/4 inch application of BOOST over top.
Step 4 – Water
To establish good, deep root penetration for future drought control, water twice a day for 7 days at 20 mins a time to keep the new seed wet and allow the BOOST to soak in. For the next 7 days, water twice a day at 10 mins a time.
By the end of those first two weeks, your lawn should already be looking pretty sweet. Go ahead and water once a day for 15 mins for 5 more days. Then cut back to normal watering right up until everyone shuts off their watering systems for the winter!
Your lawn should already be nicely reestablished with a healthy thickness, just in time forthat cold to set in. And voila– look at you and your lawn alreadyall ready for winter!
Step 5 – Spring Boost
When we finally make it through the winter, add just one more application of BOOST and …
Step 6 – BOOM!
That’s it! You did it! Now go enjoy your uber-lush, super-lavish, totally healthy lawn!
SPOILER ALERT! Your lawn’s metamorphosis is going to look like this…TO SEE THE AMAZING PHOTOS CLICK HERE!
