But Why Compost?

Composting is nature’s process of recycling decomposed organic materials into a rich soil known as compost. Anything that was once living will decompose. By composting organic waste you are returning nutrients back into the soil in order for the cycle of life to continue. Finished compost looks like soil–dark brown, crumbly, and soft to the touch. At Remington, we age our compost until it is full of nutrients that are ready to be returned to plants and trees. Garden GRO is a screened compost containing leaves, grass clippings and brush that we grind and then age.


Why should you use compost?

  1. You will reduce pest problems along with your use of pesticides.
  2. Healthy plants from healthy soil look better, produce better and have a much greater ability to fight off unwanted pests and diseases.
  3. Adding organic materials to the soil improves moisture retention.
  4. Adding decomposed organic material to the soil feeds beneficial organisms that will assist in healthy plant growth.
  5. Compost provides a balanced, slow–release source of nutrients that helps the soil hold nutrients long enough for plants to use them.
  6. Composting saves money–you avoid the cost of buying various soil conditioners.
  7. Feeding your plants well will improve your own diet. Plants grown in depleted soils have a reduced nutrient content.
