This compost mulch mix can be used as any other mulch you may buy, but without the normal "mulch" problems. Traditional mulches brake down after time and use valuable nutrients in your soil to do it. Compo-Mulch is a stable material that will not use nutrients from your soil but will actually add nutrients and organic matter to the soil. A two- to three-inch layer of compo-mulch added to your flower bed or vegetable garden will do a great job at suppressing the weeds. In addition, this mulch can be mixed into your garden soil next year instead of planting through a layer of conventional mulch as most people have to do. This mulch is a "brown to dark brown" color after it has been put into your garden.
Disclaimer about Plastic in our Compost
The food stocks that are used in the recipe for Martin’s Farm compost come from sources near you: schools, restaurants, grocery stores, homes, businesses, and farms in Franklin County. We have very high standards for our compost, and this is a priority. We have purchased the very latest equipment and gone to great lengths training our staff to insure that all efforts are made to sort, separate, and remove all plastics from the mixture at all steps in the process, creating the most organic content and highest purity possible in our final compost products. Perfection is our goal, but the reality is that some small plastic particles will still escape through the process and end up in the final product, some of which are biodegradable plastics that take more time to dissolve than our process allows.
Be assured of our complete commitment for a greener tomorrow, and exceeding our State’s organic waste diversion plan specifications. We will never stop doing our best to improve the purity of our compost, and making a positive difference in our community.
