With spring right around the corner, Pierce County is offering free samples of its SoundGRO fertilizer to help bring yards back to life.
The one-day event will be held Saturday, March 14, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of the public can pick up two free 50-pound bags of SoundGRO at the Chambers Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, located at 10311 Chambers Creek Road West, University Place. Additional bags of SoundGRO can be purchased for $3.25 each.
SoundGRO is a 100 percent naturally organic biosolids-based fertilizer created by Pierce County’s Chambers Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant. SoundGRO fertilizer meets the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) highest standards for biosolid safety and is classified as a Class A “Exceptional Quality” product. The dry, pelletized fertilizer offers multiple benefits for initial application, giving plants and grasses the boost they need after a long winter. The gentle 5-4-0 formula is a great choice for reviving plant growth. It is non-burning, has slow-release action, and its water insoluble nitrogen source will not easily wash away like chemical fertilizers.
The fertilizer is distributed in bulk quantities for treating parks, playfields, and golf courses, and it’s also used by farmers and commercial landscapers.
