To our Beaver Lakes customers:
All of our Garden mixes now come in a “Regular Mix” and a “Plus Mix”. We have Garden I “Regular” and Garden I “Plus”, Garden II “Regular” and Garden II “Plus”, Greenhouse Mix “Regular” and Greenhouse Mix “Plus:. For instance, Garden I “Regular” and Garden I “Plus” are identical in the recipe except for one item and that is the compost used in each mix. The “Regular” mix uses Mesa Magic Compost made by the Mesa County Compost Facility. The compost in the “Plus” mixes have a “Certified Organic Compost” in it called, Nutri Mulch. The possibility of herbicide contamination in a compost is the reason we make an “Organic Compost” mix. An “Organic Compost” mix should never have herbicide issues, whereas a non-organic mix could have issues. Mesa County Compost facility, in the 20 years it has been open, has never had any herbicide issues, according to them. This is great news, but one of these years, it could have an issue with herbicides and for that reason Beaver Lakes Nursery cannot and does not guarantee the “Regular” mixes to be free of herbicides. Beaver Lakes Nursery is doing the best we can to make high quality soil mixes. We use all natural and/or organic fertilizers and inputs every chance we get. Beaver Lakes Nursery began in the spring of 1997 and through those years we have grown to really love and appreciate our customers. We really mean that. Without you folks, we don’t exist. Thank you!

Our Potting Soil Mix is a very, very good Germination Mix if you have lots of seeds to plant . You will get an excellent Germination Rate. And if you feed the plants, you could leave them in the pots along time if the pots (bags) are large enough for the roots. Used both as a Germination Mix as well as Potting Soil (when plants are on some kind of feeding program). (Which by the Way, WE HAVE!)
Our Greenhouse Mix is a base mix of Compost 20%, Peat Moss 30%, Coco Coir 8%, Pumice 8%, Perlite 0%, Topsoil 10%, Rice Hulls 12%, Lava Fines 12%, 0•12•0 Bat Guano, 8•3•1 Bat Guano, cottonseed meal, and our OMRI listed organic 5•3•2 fertilizer. This mix can be used obviously in greenhouses but also outdoors as a raised bed Garden Mix. It does outstanding with veggies.
Our Garden 1 Mix is another example of an excellent raised bed Garden Mix. Garden 1 and our Greenhouse mix are our most popular Veggie garden mixes as they are still affordable and yet work real well. Before adding fertilizers, talk to us.
Garden I Mix is a blend of Compost 20%, Peat Moss 25%, CoCo Coir 8%, Pumice 10%, Lava Fines 12%, Topsoil 25%, 0•12•0 Bat Guano, 8•3•1 Bat Guano, and our OMRI listed 5•3•2 organic fertilizer. Again, visit with us first before adding much if any fertilizers.
Our Garden II Mix also is a blend of Compost 20%, Peat Moss 15%, CoCo Coir 5%, Pumice 10%, Lava Fines 10%, Topsoil 40%, 0•12•0 Bat Guano, and our OMRI listed 5•3•2 Organic Fertilizer. This is a good mix but for sure you’ll need to be on some fertilizer program. Talk to us.
As the years go by with hopefully many good grows under you, your soil will need some amending either need food or needs better drainage or minerals or perhaps all three. No matter, we have it all and at affordable prices. All Natural Organics is our thing. It’s a blessing to be able to grow your own veggies all naturally.
