Envirogrind Enriched Compost Dublin


In a nutshell....

Envirogrind is simply rocket fuel for growing vegetables. We run out of it each year due to the fact that it is just so good and its what we use on our own gardens. It is the best there is.

Soil Enriching Peat Free Compost

Note: Envirogrind is too strong to grow directly in to and needs to be mixed in to existing topsoil to add nutrients to your garden. Mix at a rate of one third Envirogrind to two thirds topsoil.

Bag Size: 1 metre cubed or approx 1 'ton or 800kg

As we all know growing vegetables takes a lot out of a garden because when we remove our nutritious crops we remove nutrition from the soil. This has to be given back. The really good stuff in the soil is composter organic matter which provides food for your plants, the worms and all the little micro organisms that live in your soil. The microbial life in your soil breaks down nutrients and feeds it to the hungry roots of your plants. It is a wonderful cycle and the corner stone of life on Earth.

The vegetable gardener cannot produce enough of their own compost to keep up nutrient levels in the garden. If you think about it all you're giving back is the waste material, the bulk of the produce is eaten by you and your family and thus doesn't return to the garden. So, we need to substitute in the form of farmyard manure or compost.

Envirogrind is the best form of compost we have found in Ireland, it has all the nutrients the garden needs and is a perfectly balanced, sustainable product. Unlike other composts it contains a high percentage of composted fish waste from Killybegs. This adds a whole host of amino acids, vitamins and macro and micro nutrients important for healthy growth. Here's how it's made:

What's in it?
The percentages of composted materials are:  Food 40% - Fish 20% and green 40%.  It goes through a 14 week process in a closed Vessel composting facility.  It naturally reaches a temperature of 70 degrees which kills off pathogens and weed seeds.

What's so great about it?

  • It's a very well balanced product with large amounts of potassium and potash as well as slow release nitrogen. It won't burn plant roots once mixed with topsoil and will release nutrients over a number of months.

  • We recommend using it as a mulch or soil improver. It's best worked into the surface of the soil rather than dug in completely.

  • It is completely weed free. Fresh manure can contain weeds like thistle and scutch grass or pests like flat worm or leatherjackets. Envirogrind is totally clear of any of these.
  • It greatly increases crop yield. We added one bucket to a square metre of soil and left another without. The untreated metre gave us 2.5kg of potatoes while the envirogrind metre gave us 5kg. Maths wasn't my forte at school but even I can see that's double the yield.
  • It is a natural product which recycles food and plant waste to turn it into a sustainable, peat free compost product.


While every effort is made to remove any foreign bodies from the soil and compost we supply we cannot guarantee it is completely free of small fragments of sharp objects. All our soil and compost must pass thorough a fine screening process down to a 20mm but small unwanted particles can escape this process.

While it is unusual to find small pieces of glass or ceramic with sharp edges this does happen from time to time. We strongly recommend using a good pair of gardening gloves when handling any topsoil or municipal compost and our mix is no exception.


Delivery is Kerbside delivery. We don't guarantee the bag can be left within the boundry of your property. If we can't access your driveway the bag will be left at the closest point possible.

The soil is delivered in cubic metre bags placed on a wooden pallet. The soil can only go as close to your site as the hand operated pallet truck allows.The truck is not equipped with a grab so bags cannot be lifted over walls or hedges.

While the delivery driver will do his best to get the bag as close as he can to your property he is unable to move the bag over kerbs, up an incline or on loose gravel surfaces. Remember the bag is a tonne weight and once off the truck is moved by the effort of the driver alone.

If you are unsure about access to your property please call us beforehand to discuss.

Lovely rich, dark compost. Looking forward to a good season. I bag went a long way. Very happy and great to see a proper quality bulk compost instead of the rough woody stuff you see so much of. Vegetable growers heaven!

My third year to use Envirogrind. I find I get excellent results when I feed the soil with this product.

I have being using Enviro Grind compost for 3 years and I cannot find any bulk compost on the market to match this product. The older the compost gets the better it gets. In my green house I have the best tomatoes and cucumbers in all my years of gardening. And in my raised beds I have amazing carrots, parsnips, cabbage, potatoes, turnips, cauliflower, broccoli and beetroot. I am very happy with this product and thank you for your fast delivery service.

I was very happy when my bag of Envirogrind arrived as it looked great. But now that i am harvesting my crops i can actually say the difference is in the eating. I have been growing my own for a few years and this year with the help of Envirogrind it is the first time i have had successful potatoes and Brassicas and i can really taste the difference in everything. Thanks for bringing this product nationwide.

Your product looks good and was easy to spread. I have just used it for the first time and I can only comment on how effective it is at the end of the season.
June 28th, 2016
Your service was first rate - quick courteous and I had the feeling I was dealing with a company I'd go back to. The only fly in the ointment was the courier but in fairness that is not your fault. When the courier rang me my heart sank as we had had dealings with them before and because we live down a slightly difficult lane and they have huge trucks and a pretty unobliging driver, deliveries tend to be fraught with difficulty. In the past he insisted on our picking up the goods on the main road; but because this was .75 of a ton that was not an option. I massaged his ego and got it dumped close to where I wanted it and in fairness it was not easy for him. I have not had time to use the product yet but it looks wonderful.

Hi there, I'm preparing my vegetable garden to be ready for spring using cardboard and compost in layers. I've run out of compost, would envirogrind work? I'm thinking that if it it's working away between layers of cardboard that some of the nutrients might be leached making it less rich and more suited for direct planting? Thanks, Niamh

Hi Niamh Yes. I use Envirogrind every winter for exactly that and it works fantastically well Niall Quickcrop

Will a bag of this be enough to fill one of your 6x6 allotment beds?
Answered by Niall
on March 20th, 2021
Hi Pamela It depends what height of bed you are going for. It will fill a 9 inch 6ft x 6ft bed perfectly. That said i wouldn't use only Envirogrind as it will be to rich for a lot of the crops so best to use the tonne bag of the veg mix as you can grow directly in to that. Envirogrind is more for enriching existing soil Niall Quickcrop

Hi there, I got two large bags of envirogrind for my new poly tunnel and got a bit carried away and filled one bed completely with envirogrind. What can I plant directly into it veg/ fruit wise? Or do I need to remove some and add topsoil? Thanks again, D
Answered by Niall
on January 14th, 2021
Hi D Realistically the only crop that can take such rich soil is potatoes. Other than that i would suggest adding topsoil on top and planting in to this. The nutrients below in the Envirogrind will be fine once the plants like Brassicas etc get established and their roots are strong enough to get down to the Envirogrind Niall Quickcrop

Is Envirogrind suitable for adding to pots for ornamental plants ?
Answered by Niall

Hi Maire Yes however you would not want to put to much in each pot as it is very strong. One or two handfuls per pot. Living green might be the better option Niall Quickcrop

Hello, how would this product perform as a mulch for weed suppression on a large newly planted shrub bank, or is it such that it will feed the weeds too?
Answered by Andrew
on July 08th, 2020
Hi David. This product will work as a mulch but it is nutrient rich so will feed the soil as it breaks down. I think I would suggest you would be better off a bark mulch or similar.

Answered by Niall

Hi Robert We have been using it on our gardens for years with no ill effects but as there is municipal garden waste in the mix it is impossible to know however the other main ingredient is fish farm waste from the ocean which is organic. Not a certified organic product however. Niall Quickcrop

Hi Antonia A half tray of plants will be enough to fill a Vegtrug however it totally depends on the mix of crops as you would fit 100 carrots in a trug but only 6 cabbage as an example Niall Quickcrop

Hi, Would envirogrind be ok to use as a potting compost for growing bare root trees?

Asked By Lisa Young
on March 09th, 2020
Hi Niall, Thank you for your suggestion to use the vegetable soil mix to revive my raised beds. My next question is could you advise on how much I would need to cover the two 1m x 5m beds with a 150mm layer? (My very poor maths suggests I would need 2 x 1 tonne bags)
Answered by Niall
on March 09th, 2020
Hi Lisa No. One tonne bag will be plenty Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Lisa Young
on March 09th, 2020
Hi, I have two 1m x5m raised beds that have been out of use and covered with plastic and weed barrier fabric for about 12 years. I want to start using them again but the soil underneath these coverings is compacted without any sign of a single worm. I'd thought of covering them with cardboard (to suppress the off few docs and occasional bramble that managed to take root along some edges)and a 6" layer of Envirogrind. But from what I've just been reading this would be too strong and unsuitable for growing veg in by itself. The existing soil in the beds is too dense and heavy (and possibly dead) to try to dig the Envirogrind evenly. Can you give me any advice for getting the beds up and running again? Many thanks.
Answered by Niall
on March 09th, 2020
Hi Lisa We have a vegetable mix that is perfect for this which is new fresh topsoil mixed with a good strong compost for veg growing. However we only sell this in the tonne bags and this might be to much for you. We also sell a product called Jacks Magic which you can buy in 50 litre bags and is fine to grow in to however not as good as the above tonne bags. You are right on the Envirogrind. It is to strong to grow directly in to and would need to be dug in with your existing soil Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Shane
on September 07th, 2019
I'm interested in starting no-dig gardening. Some inground and some in raised beds. I know you guys know a bit about the topic since you visited Godfather Dowding in person. It seems this stuff is too rich but is a topsoil mix not going to defeat the plan somewhat when it comes to the raised beds? Would I need to mulch farther with hay or something? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on September 09th, 2019
Hi Shane Envirogrind is to rich to grow directly in to however if you put it on the top of your beds once you have them set up it is ideal for no Dig as the worms will be attracted up to it and hence air your soil. No need to mulch on top of the Envirogrind. Niall Quickcrop

Hi, can I plant straight in it without mixing? O it's too reach for tomatoes and salads?
Answered by Andrew

It is to rich to grow directly in to for almost all crops except potatoes. You would need to mix it one third Envirogrind to two thirds ordinary topsoil.

hi how much envirogrind would i need for 12x6 meter bed for vegtable growing,would i need to replensish each year. thanks robert
Answered by Andrew
on March 22nd, 2017
Hi Robert. It really depends how deep you want to mix in the Envirogrind. You wouldn't grow directly in to Envirogrind as it is to strong. You mix it in 1 part envirogrind to 3 parts topsoil for optimum use. A 2 inch spread over the area you are talking about would need roughly 200 litres of it or 3/4 of the 60 litre bags.
Asked By Aine butler
on February 10th, 2017
Hi my envirogrind arrived today thanks and I had a look. It's wet and dark on top but a couple of inches down it's very dry and greyish and still quite warm! Is this normal? Or does it need to cook a bit more? Thanks Aine
Answered by Andrew
on February 13th, 2017
Hi Aine. The further you go in to the bag the warmer it will be as the composting process continues even when added to the soil. It is only dark on the top as it is wet but it is more grey when dry. Once you add it to your soil it will take up the moisture in the soil and will get wet once it rains and it will be a dark dark compost mix. Everything is fine with it. Get ready for some great crops as it is fantastic stuff.

Asked By Reika Huber

Hi, I need the compost for my allotment in Enniskerry. Is it possible to make an appointment for the delivery so I can meet the truck at the right place. Thanks
Answered by Andrew
on April 10th, 2015
Hi Reika Unfortunately we can only say if it will be morning or afternoon on the day of delivery as we use a bulk load haulier to delivery and timetabling is difficult. Home deliveries don't tend to be a problem but in our experience allotments can be tricky unless you can be there all day. We also do 60 litre bags of envirogrind which goes by courier so we can give you a 2 hr window for delivery. Sorry I can't be more helpful with this one.
