We sell all-natural compost that is produced in Clifton Park NY near Saratoga Springs NY and made from grass clippings, leaves and plants that have decomposed into a nutrient rich supplement to be added to your soil. You may only need compost to supplement their overused soil to continue to grow food and plants that have nutrients. You may want to use topsoil instead where erosion has occurred, or a shallow layer of topsoil exists. You rarely should need to combine the two items.
What Is Compost?
Compost is decayed organic material that is used as fertilizer for plants. By adding compost to your soil, you’ll restore the vital nutrients to the soil that your plants need to flourish and grow healthy. Compost is created through the natural recycling of organic material. The decomposition of these natural materials helps create a nutrient-rich soil additive that helps restore the essential elements that plants need to grow, thrive and flourish.
How Much Compost Do You Need?
