Why Composting??

Composting yard waste breaks down the plant tissue to simple, basic nutrients in a form that plants can use for growth. Yards and gardens can receive the benefits of rich, moist humus when worked into the soil in the Spring or Fall or anytime during the growing season.Want to know how to compost? Composting creates nutrient rich soil Knowing how to compost can save you alot of money and produce a healthy organic garden.

 

Ringer Compost Plus Compost Maker uses a range of natural microorganisms that are designed and selected for the material that they decompose. In particular, they combine thermophilic organisms that work at higher temperatures. Ringer Compost Plus contains specially designed nutrient sources that start the compost process more quickly and efficiently.

 

 

Directions for Use and how to compost:

  1. Select a shady spot with good drainage. Place a thin layer of bulky material such as twigs or wood chips on the bottom to reduce packing and to aerate the bottom layer. Start your compost pile with a layer of yard waste (shredded brown leaves, grass clippings, chipped wood trimmings, etc) 4-6 inches deep.
  2. Sprinkle Compost Plus liberally over top of pile. Use about 1 cup for a 3x4 ft x 4 inch layer. Do not pack materials too tightly or make pile too large.
  3. Water to moisten (water until pile has the dampness of a sqeezed out sponge
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 with each additional layer. For best results use a combination of fine and coarse materials and do not use meat, fat or bones in your compost pile.
  5. Every 7 to 10 days, aerate pile with an aeration tool or turn with forked tool or spade
  6. Grass clippings will compost the fastest, leaves are slower and twigs, woodchips, etc. will take the longest. That is all it takes to learn how to compost. If you would like more information about composting, please visit our 'How to Compost' page in our Gardening 101 section.

How to use your Humus:

  • Humus enhances the supply and availability of all nutrients to the soil
  • Improve garden soil by applying a 3 inch layer of humus and turn it into the soil before planting.
  • Your finished humus makes a great mulch over a bulb garden
  • Add to a new lawn- blend compost into the soil prior to seeding or sodding

All About Composting

What is Composting?

Compost is one of nature's best mulches and soil amendments, and when combined with an organic pre-emergent weed prevention product such as Concern Weed Prevention Plus or organic fertilizer such as Ringer Lawn Restore, microorganisms break down organic matter into nutrients used by your plants to grow stronger!

All About Composting - soil

 

Using compost improves soil structure, texture, and aeration as well as increasing the amount of moisture the soil retains, allowing you to water less often.

 

Compost can clean and repair contaminated soil, including soils that have been destroyed by harmful synthetic chemicals.

 

 

 

How to Compost

 

There are two ways to make compost, actively or passively:

Active composting

Active composting is highly-involved. The more time you invest, ultimately the more fertilizer it will yield. Being active in the process involves occasional turning of the pile, shredding of the waste material (heats up and decomposes quicker).

 

Passive composting

Passive composting is just as it sounds. You place your waste in your compost bin and leave it alone, only adding to the pile. Eventually (usually in a year or two) you have your finished product with minimal interaction.
