What are the advantages of making your own compost?
This is good for the plants and the soil.
Compost is an excellent soil amendment for your garden. A supply of compost will rejuvenate the humus layer of soil. This new source of humus improves soil structure and increases the water holding capacity of garden soil. The compost will attract a diverse fauna which improved soil aeration.
It is a good way to recycle and economize.
Your compost will fertilize and amend the soil of your garden without costing you a single penny. The organic matter recovered will not be buried in a landfill. Organic matter in landfills produces methane which is a greenhouse gas. This gas contributes to global warming.
