Recycling organic matter into compost and using it on your plants brings lots of benefits. Composting will turn old branches and other organic waste into nutrient-rich soil for your lawn, garden, or farm. Compost is becoming more popular because it is very easy to make and use in a variety of ways.
How to Ensure that the compost is ready
Whether you buy your compost or make it yourself, you should have a handle on knowing whether your compost is ready for your soil or still needs some time to cure.

At Indianhead, we strive to give you mature, ready-to-use compost right at purchase, so you don’t need to wait to bring new life to your plants!
