My father and I have been busy with his garden in American Fork for the past few month. We have prepared the ground, laid out and leveled the boxes, added the Pre-plant, filled them with sawdust and sand (75%/25%), added more Pre-plant and weekly feed, and trenched and placed irrigation pipes, etc. LOTS of work! (Pre-Plant and Weekly Feed in small batches)
People at times have a hard time finding the sawdust and sand needed for this type of project. I thought I would share.
The SAWDUST was obtained in Spanish Fork at Wasatch Pallet. They charge $20 for 2 cubic yards of sawdust. Essentially 2 bobcat loads of sawdust. It is clean sawdust and we were told it is from pine, fur and spruce trees.
We used UNWASHED SAND (mainly because it was a bit cheaper than washed sand) obtained from American Stone in Lehi. They charge $0.02/lb.
Hope this helps.
