Healthier soil, better plants and contributing to a natural environment are all benefits of making compost with a Mantis Compostumber
Compost makes hard clay soil more airy so it drains better and provides a healthier base for the roots of plants. Your own home-made compost is completely safe and natural and won’t harm children, pets, wildlife or the environment. Compost builds humus in your soil and improves soil structure, texture, fertility, drainage and aeration. It is a mega-boost for plants, they grow bigger, produce a higher yield and more beautiful flowers. Good nutrient rich compost also helps plants to build resistance to disease. Adding compost to your soil bulks it up, especially sandy soil, giving it more substance and texture to support hardy root growth.
Making your own compost is also a great way to recycle your daily waste. Instead of sending kitchen waste and garden waste to landfill, recycling them through composting sends them back into natures environment as high powered, natural fertilizer.
A Self Sustaining Ecosystem
Composting creates a harmonious, natural balance in your garden or allotment. Food scraps, leaves, grass cuttings, black and white newspaper print and plant clippings all contain friendly bacteria. When mixed together in an enclosed environment, those bacteria become microorganisms that feed on the organic waste and produce a healthy ecosystem in the process.
Once the waste has become compost, using that compost you replenish the earth with its own nutrients, which are ideally suited to your particular environment. Its the perfect example of the three R’s of healthy ecology – Reduce, Recycle, Return.
