TAGRO Open During Construction
Work on a floodwall to protect the Central Treatment Plant has started near TAGRO headquarters. TAGRO remains open during regular hours, but construction will lead to some changes in traffic patterns.
Watch for signs for entering and exiting the facility, and be cautious while driving in the area.
TAGRO, short for “Tacoma Grow,” our award-winning, environmentally friendly products will give you better results with your lawn and garden—even while you help to reuse community resources and protect our environment.
Proven safe and effective - and awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s highest rating for use in landscaping, vegetable gardens and indoor container gardens - all-natural TAGRO products are made from a blend of pasteurized wastewater byproducts called biosolids and other weed-free gardening components.
By the bucket or truckload, TAGRO customers say their gardens grow faster, lawns grow thicker and trees grow taller. Vegetables and flowers grown in TAGRO have earned more than 120 ribbons at the Puyallup Fair since 1992. And our biosolids program has received national awards, including the Environmental Protection Agency’s first place award for the best biosolids program in the country.
Consumers in Tacoma have been using TAGRO Mix in landscaping and vegetable gardens since 1991. A newer product, TAGRO Potting Soil (available in bulk and by the bag), makes it even easier for your garden to grow. And, because of improvements to the process that Tacoma uses to create its biosolids, the material that goes into TAGRO Potting Soil is virtually odor-free.
