What Is Compost?
Compost is decayed organic material that is used as fertilizer for plants. By adding compost to your soil, you’ll restore the vital nutrients to the soil that your plants need to flourish and grow healthy.
Compost is created through the natural recycling of organic material. The decomposition of these natural materials helps create a nutrient-rich soil additive that helps restore the essential elements that plants need to grow, thrive and flourish.
How Much Compost Do You Need?
The amount of compost you need depends on the size of the area you are trying to cover as well as how deep you need the compost to go. One cubic yard of compost will cover roughly 324 square feet of area at a depth of one inch. If you’re ever unsure of how much compost you need for a project, the friendly staff at Material Sand & Gravel would be happy to help answer any questions you might have.
