Spring is here, you’re ready to start planting all the perennials, annuals, and edibles you picked from the local nursery, and you’ve got bags of Beyond Peat™ Professional Organics—mixed and ready to use straight from the bag. But just how much planting material do you need? Here’s a quick, easy-to-digest guide to help you figure out how much mix you need for a variety of situations.
In your raised bed, put a layer of gravel at the bottom for drainage and then fill the bed halfway up with Beyond Peat™ Professional Organics Raised Bed Mix. Dig up holes for plants, put them in, and then fill up the rest of the bed with the mix. Finally, pat gently and water away.
|Raised Bed Size||Amount for 6 In. Deep||Amount for 12 In. Deep||Amount for 20 In. Deep|
|4 Sq. Ft. (2 Ft. x 2 Ft.)||2 Bags||3 Bags||4 Bags|
|16 Sq. Ft (4 Ft. x 4 Ft.)||6 Bags||10 Bags||18 Bags|
|32 Sq. Ft. (4 Ft. x 8 Ft.)||10 Bags||22 Bags||36 Bags|
For in-ground planting, cover your area with between 2- to 3-inches deep of Beyond Peat™ All-Purpose Garden Soil while mixing in native soil at the same time. Dig up holes twice the width of the root mass of your plants, put them in, and then add more oil. Finally, pat gently and water away.

|24 Sq. Ft. (6 Ft. x 4 Ft.)||4 Bags||6 Bags|
|48 Sq. Ft. (8 Ft. x 6 Ft.)||8 Bags||12 Bags|
|72 Sq. Ft. (9 Ft. x 8 Ft.)||12 Bags||18 Bags|
|96 Sq. Ft. (12 Ft. x 8 Ft.)||16 Bags||24 Bags|
Ensure your container has a drainage hole and cover it with small rocks to prevent soil compaction, and then fill up half of your container with Beyond Peat™ Professional Organics Potting Mix. Dig up holes for plants, put them in, and then fill up the rest of the container with mix. Finally, pat gently and water away.
