The Importance of Composting
Composting is the process of turning organic matter that is ready for disposal into something beneficial. It is important because it converts organic materials (except anything animal-based) such as vegetable matter, eggshells, coffee grinds, tea bags, paper products, trimmed grasses, twigs/leaves, and the like by allowing them to decompose into a rich form of soil. This organic compost matter is chock-full of vitamins and helps in growing plants in any space. Compost is also crucial because it wards off harmful pests.
At Labrador Landscape Supplies, we understand that the right type of organic compost can make all the difference in a garden. Thus, Labrador Landscape provides only high-quality compost and soil combinations for any garden across the Brisbane and Gold Coast regions. Take a look at our unique soil and compost mixes.
