Compost – Conserving Water
Compost helps to conserve water in a few different ways. In its capacity to retain and efficiently transfer water through the soil, compost allows surrounding plants to maximize water for growth. This in turn saves you money by minimizing the amount of irrigation you will have to provide to your project.
Through increased infiltration, compost prevents water from laterally flowing off the land, and potentially into storm drains and sewers. When water soaks into the soil better, the water transfers more efficiently within the soil
Through increased absorption, compost helps soil to retain water more efficiently. This maintains more water on the site for productive use.
