Pure Compost and Topsoil Compost

Landscaping is both science and art, and requires good observation and design skills. A good landscaper understands the elements of nature and construction, and blends them accordingly.

We sell pure Compost and Topsoil Compost. Pure Compost is either a sawdust and horse manure aged 2 years, or a cow manure, alfalfa, and brome mix aged 2 years. Topsoil compost is a mix of topsoil and pure compost.

Compost

Compost is organic matter that has been decomposed and recycled as a fertilizer and soil amendment. Modern, methodical composting is a multi-step, closely monitored process with measured inputs of water, air and carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials. The decomposition process is aided by shredding the plant matter, adding water and ensuring proper aeration by regularly turning the mixture.

It is used in gardens and landscaping. Compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation, wetland construction, and as landfill cover. Compost is generally recommended as an additive to soil, or other matrices such as coir and peat, as a tilth improver, supplying humus and nutrients. It provides a rich growing medium, or a porous, absorbent material that holds moisture and soluble minerals, providing the support and nutrients in which plants can flourish.
