What is mature compost? Simply defined, compost is a decomposed organic matter. Mature compost is a complex organic material that has been transformed into a stable humus by microorganisms. Decomposition is performed by the naturally occurring microorganisms that utilize the organic materials for their food and energy sources.
Compost will enhance your landscape in a variety of ways. It is most commonly used as a high-quality mulch, which is especially effective around new transplants, in the garden and flower beds, as an amendment to potted plants, and on lawns, ball fields, and golf courses.
