Common Compost Questions
As a layer of mulch can provide your crops with a clean, uniform appearance along with many nutrients, it is important to know how much mulch you need before choosing the type of mulch. The amount of mulch needed can be calculated using this formula: length (ft) x height (ft) x width (ft) / 27. Use our online calculator to determine how much you need.

All forms of organic feedstock such as yard trimmings, land clearings, sawdust, stumps, vegetation, woodchips, dimensional lumber, cut-offs, and scraps are eligible for organic recycling. We take these organic feedstocks and essentially combine them with nitrogen in biosolids to convert the waste back into beneficial products.
As treated wood, or wood that is either painted or glued contain chemicals that are not suitable for recycling, it is important to identify “clean wood” which includes wood scraps, wood pallets, dimensional lumber, cut-offs, woodchips, and sawdust. Wood that contains nails, screws, staples, or other metal fasteners are still considered as good candidates for recycling

Compost is made to feed the soil while fertilizer is made to feed the plants. Adding in compost to your soil helps improve the water holding capacity, provides organic matter, and active biology in the soil. Essentially, compost and fertilizer can work together to provide nutrients for plants as well as hold in moisture.
Aside from adding in mulch to make your landscape look more pleasing, it also provides many great benefits to both your soil and plants. Mulch is very beneficial in helping to provide organic matter, retain moisture in the soil, improving soil conditions, increasing biological activity, preventing soil erosion and soil compaction, and much more.
