    We hope all of you plan to recycle your living Christmas trees this year. Many cities offer curbside Christmas tree collection during the two weeks following Christmas. Remove all ornaments, lights and tinsel, saw the tree in half and place the tree in your green materials recycling barrel. If you live in a city without curbside tree recycling, check with your waste collector for a drop off location. Agromin will be collecting about 70,000 trees from Ventura County this year. Drop your trees off at our 6859 Arnold Road location in Oxnard. We'll grind up the trees and use the much in home and business landscapes.

  • Huntington Beach Ball Parks Get an Upgrade in Time for Fall League Play
    Friday, December 21, 2012 at

  • Baseball and softball players noticed a difference when they took to the fields this fall at two Huntington Beach ballparks. Fields at Murdy Park and Huntington Beach Central Park Sports Complex are now  lush green after they were recently upgraded with new grass seed and organic top dressing. The organic top dressing  was supplied by Agromin, which makes its soils amendments and top dressing from recycled organic materials.

    At Murdy Park, the turf was dethatched on the four baseball fields. Three-way rye seed was laid followed by 90 cubic yards of Agromin's Universal Soil Blend Pro--a product that combines the company's OMRI-listed Compost 100 with its Universal Soil Blend. The soil, especially created for the project, was screened so it had the consistency of coffee grounds. 

    At Huntington Central Park Sports Complex, the fields were aerated, seeded and then 255 cubic yards of Agromin's Universal Turf a premier top dressing seed cover  was applied to the fields and diamonds.

    Agromin's products are available to consumers at Larry's Building Materials in Costa Mesa and Laguna Beach, South Coast Supply in Huntington Beach and Rainbow Environmental Services (Gate 7) in Huntington Beach.
