Compost

Compost material is an excellent solution for improving soil fertility and structure in landscaping. It enriches the soil with organic matter, enhances water retention, and promotes the growth of healthy plants.

Compost Uses

At Longo Landscape we use our compost material on our landscape custom projects. We also sell our compost material to customers.

Compost Types

There are several types of compost, with varied ingredients. Here are 2 types:

Brown Materials (Carbon-rich):

  • Dry leaves
  • Straw
  • Shredded newspaper
  • Cardboard (shredded)
  • Sawdust (small amounts)

 

Green Materials (Nitrogen-rich):

  • Fruit and vegetable scraps
  • Coffee grounds
  • Grass clippings (in moderation)
  • Garden waste (trimmings, weeds without seeds)
  • Kitchen scraps (avoid meat, dairy, and oily items)

 

If needed, you could add eggshells, wood ash, and even soil to introduce beneficial microorganisms
