Benefits of Compost
Home gardeners have longed to have the rich dark cake-like soils that they see in gardening magazines and on gardening shows. What they often don’t realize is that this soil has been created over time. Compost can change the soil structure to improve drainage, improve the oxygen levels in and around the roots, and to create a better overall soil structure for plant growth. Another benefit, depending on the type and source of soil amendment, is the level of nutrients the compost can add to the soil for plants to use as food. Not all compost is created equally. Compost varies from product to product.  The compost that Brightside offers is municipal compost. 
About Compost
MUNICIPAL COMPOST is a mixture of leaves, chipped tree limbs, and yard waste from various cities, composted into an earthy, well mixed amendment that any home gardener would be happy to use on their garden. This product has become available because many cities decided to recycle yard and park waste, rather than throw the stuff into the dump at great cost. The greatest value of compost is in the organic matter, which can act as a nutrient buffer and improve the soil structure for a year or two after application.
