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
