Benefits of Compost
There are many benefits to using compost for mulch.
Naturally dark colour, no dye added
Suppresses weeds and retains moisture
As a composted manure-based product, it has the high nutrient level of natural fertilizer
As the mulch breaks down, it adds nutrients to the soil
Applied 2-3 inches thick, will add nutrients, loosen clay soil, add organic matter, and help control erosion.
