The compost we use to topdress a lawn is 100% natural, derived from decomposed leaves and yard trimmings. In addition to adding nutrients to the soil, it improves the soil structure, increases water-holding capacity, and helps to feed the microbes in your existing soil.
Over time, plants will deplete the soil of nutrients until eventually the soil becomes sterile. Composting restores the natural balance of the soil, which in turn reduces the pressure the lawn receives from disease and fungus. It also boosts the soils ability to hold moisture without being soggy. This aids in the defense of summer heat.
Composting restores the natural balance of your soil by releasing nutrients that can be used by the microbial population. The increase in microbial activity aids in suppression of diseases, transforming raw materials into further nutrients for the lawn, and degradation of pesticides and other chemicals found in the soil.
