Types of Compost and Their Benefits

As a leading topsoil supply company in the St. Louis area, we sell a variety of types of organic, clean compost. All of our compost is checked and rechecked so that you only get the components that will help your plants thrive. Here is a brief look at the types of compost that we offer and what these can be used for:

  • Leaf Mulch: Leaf mulch is a type of compost that is made entirely out of decaying leaves. This is a very rich type of compost and it increases the nutrition content of your soil drastically. Leaf mulch is made by allowing leaves to decompose over time. It usually has a very dark brown or black color and is crumbly in texture. It is mainly used to improve soil structure and increase water retention.
  • Organic Compost: Organic compost is made completely from organic matter. This is not just limited to leaves, and may include other plant components as well, such as vegetable matter and coffee grounds. You can find anything from fruit peels to straw in organic compost. This type of compost is great for your garden. It is very nourishing and adds essential nutrients back into the soil, helping your plants grow.
  • Manure Compost: This compost is composed of the manure of animals, usually cows, sheep, and horses. It is preferential to use the manure of herbivorous animals because it has more plant nutrients and is better for soil enrichment. Manure compost supplies the soil with nutrients and also helps with the retention of air and water. Additionally, it encourages earthworms, which are great for your garden.

Choosing the right compost may seem complicated, but it does not have to be. If you know exactly what you need from your compost, choosing becomes that much easier. At Kurtz Nursery and Topsoil, we are soil experts and we can help you choose the compost that is perfect for your garden.
