Why use Quality Compost?

Using quality compost improves soil structure, fertility and general soil health. Healthy soil is essential for healthy plants and landscapes! Compost can do a lot of the hard work for you by increasing the water holding and nutrient capacity of soil, meaning that less water and fertiliser is required for ongoing maintenance. This can significantly reduce maintenance costs and makes compost a very cost effective option.
As compost can improve soil structure, it can also be used to repair problem soils. Using quality compost on/in  sandy soils  will improve soil structure and the water and nutrient holding capacity of the soil. This means that plants have access to both water and nutrients for longer periods of time, ensuring better plant growth. Improved soil structure also helps to prevent soil erosion, as does the addition of quality compost mulch into the landscape. Compost mulch will also help to control weeds, further reducing landscape inputs like herbicide and labour costs.
