Functions

Increases retention of nutrients and water, reducing water usage and dependency.  Helps develop and improve better soil structure.

Improves soil structure by building humus, providing a food source and environment providing a laying medium for soil microbes and earth worm activity, which slowly release essential nutrients needed for healthy plant growth.

Has decomposed slowly which improves friability of garden beds making them easier to cultivate.

Improves soil aeration and its water holding capacity, which is then available for plant growth.  Humus has been shown to hold up to 5 times it weight in water.  This is very important in dry weather.

Looks just like good soil.

May be used as a top dressing for established lawns or mixed with existing soil as a lawn starter.

No unpleasant odours – Just a rich earthy aroma.

No artificial chemicals or additives.

Being very high in organic matter it increases soil ability to store and release nutrients when needed to stimulate seed germination and root development for healthier plants and helps buffer garden beds against rapid pH changes.
