Why fall's tree leaves are the best for compost?

When it comes to normal lawn and garden maintenance, composting is arguably your best option. Instead of using chemical fertilizers that tend to have a negative impact on local wildlife and the ability to disrupt the natural ecosystem, you need to use leaves as composts.

Leaves are a valuable source of nutrients to matured plants and tender plants which they also insulate from cold. They can be used to lighten up heavy soils as well as help to retain moisture in sandy soils. They provide carbon that can balance the nitrogen in your compost pile.

You can save a lot of money that would have been spent on fertilizers and other soil additives when you have a large pile of leaves in your property. Additionally, they are an excellent way of recycling your yard waste.

Composts aid the aeration and compaction of the soil

Composting improves the aeration of the soil, and it is an excellent way to allow water and oxygen to get to your trees and other plants. It also reduces compaction and the amount of irrigation you need to sustain the health of the plant. Because composts are packed with trace minerals which are broken down through natural processes and absorbed by the trees, it is described by some experts as a gift to the plants.

Adverse soil conditions can be reversed by composting

The biological and chemical effects of composts can improve the soil rhizosphere, reversing degradation trends to start-off the soil restoration process. Compost is dark, rich, nourishing, end-product of a concentrated decomposition process that you need in your garden and for the health of your trees.

Compost will help you save a lot of money

If you already have a pile of compost in your yard, add up the gathered leaves to fasten the decomposition process.

You will experience a better growth of your garden crops, reduce irrigation and also maintain production levels for commercial farmers.

Call us for expert advice if you want to use the gathered leaves around your yard to form compost, we will give you information on what to use to break down the compost, how to apply it to the plants and other tips.
