How is Compost useful?

CompostFoundation.org, over 150 composting resources nationwide!

Compost plays a crucial role in enhancing soil health, supporting plant growth, and promoting sustainable landscaping practices. At Green Tek Planet, our compostable products are designed to address various environmental and horticultural needs. From improving stormwater management through bioretention to enriching garden soil for healthier plant growth, our compost solutions offer a range of benefits. Whether you are looking to create nutrient-rich topsoil, maintain lush turf, or supplement plant nutrition, our eco-friendly compost products provide a reliable and sustainable choice for your gardening and landscaping projects.

Bioretention – Blending compost and sand is an excellent method for stormwater management. This blend captures and treats water naturally, removing sediment and chemical contaminants, enhancing microbial processes, and eliminating the need for fertilization for 1-2 years.

Garden and Landscape Growth – Incorporating compost into the plant-root zone improves soil quality and plant growth for all types of plantings, including trees, shrubs, vines, and herbaceous plants. This practice saves nutrients (a minimum of 75% for up to 2 years), water (25-50% annually), and improves germination.

Topsoil Manufacturing – Blending compost and mineral soil components can create landscape-grade topsoil, doubling water holding capacity, porosity, and reducing the need for pH adjusting agents (e.g., lime, sulfur, gypsum).

Turf MaintenanceCompost provides soil-borne disease suppression, reducing the need for pesticide applications, and assists in the degradation of thatch (undigested roots, leaves, and organics that settle between turfgrass and the soil).

Plant Nutrition SupplementCompost supplies slow-releasing primary and secondary micronutrients, like nitrogen and phosphate, over a 3-5 year period. It is applicable to various types of vegetables, small fruits, herbs, and similar plants.

Being sustainable is not just a choice; it is a responsibility that we owe to our planet and future generations. The benefits of embracing sustainability are manifold and impactful with bioplastics. #compostable #sustainable #bioplastics #greentekplanet
