- Compost makes hard clay soil more airy so it drains better and provides a healthier base for roots of plants.
- Your own home-made compost is completely safe and natural. It will not harm kids, pets, or the environment.
- Compost builds humus in your soil and improves soil structure, texture, fertility, drainage, and aeration.
- Compost is a mega-boost for plants. They grow bigger, produce bigger yields, and more beautiful flowers.
- Compost makes your plants more resistant to disease.
- Compost bulks-up thin, sandy soil, giving it more substance and texture to support hardy root growth.
- Making compost is a great way to recycle. Instead of sending kitchen and yard wastes to the landfill, turning them into compost recycles them back into nature's environment as a high-powered natural fertilizer.
- Use compost to top-dress new and existing lawns for thicker, healthier grass. On a newly seeded lawn, spread a thin layer of compost as top dressing. For an existing lawn, aerate first then spread the compost.
A Self-Sustaining Ecosystem
Composting creates a harmonious, natural balance in your yard and garden.
Food scraps, leaves, grass trimmings, black and white newsprint, and plant clippings all contain friendly bacteria. When mixed together in an enclosed environment, those bacteria become microorganisms that feed on the organic waste and produce a healthy ecosystem in the process.
The waste material turns into compost. By using that compost you replenish the earth with its own nutrients, which are ideally suited to your particular environment. It's the perfect example of the three R's of healthy ecology - Reduce, Recycle, Return.
