Understanding Compost

Compost is a great way to sustainably convert decomposition into rich amendments that help nourish our landscapes, effectively creating healthy foliage, bright flowers, and bountiful harvests.

Compost is ideal for:

  • Soil Structure
  • Organic Matter
  • Vigorous Root Growth
  • Proliferation of Soil Microorganisms

Why use Organic Compost?

Here are some of the known facts and benefits of using Organic Compost.

  • Improves soil structure and porosity – creating a better plant root environment
  • Improves the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soils
  • Supplies organic matter
  • Aids the proliferation of soil microorganisms
  • Encourages vigorous root growth
  • Allows plants to more effectively utilize nutrients, while reducing nutrient loss by leaching
  • Enables soils to retain nutrients longer
  • Contains humus – assisting in soil aggregation and making nutrients more available for plant uptake
  • Increases moisture infiltration and permeability, and reduces bulk density of heavy soils – improving infiltration rates and reducing erosion and runoff
  • Improves the moisture holding capacity of light soils – reducing water loss and nutrient leaching, and improving moisture retention
  • Buffers soil pH
