Compost is organic matter that has been decomposed and may be made from single source material or blended for specific application performance. Green waste materials used include: garden debris, kitchen scraps, manure, or yard and lawn waste.
Nutrient rich in composition, compost acts as a natural, healthy, organic fertilizer for your plants. It is typically a soil additive mixed prior to planting to provide nutrients and improve soil structure, but can also be used a protective mulch layer or top dressed to planted areas.
