Grass Factory & Eco Organics manufacture pure organic compost and can supply to the public through our stores in Pretoria and Johannesburg; alternatively in bulk to landscapers, garden services, estates, complexes, schools or golf courses.

Our Organic Compost

We make use of organic materials to produce two different grades of compost to help your garden along. Using either our fine variant (8mm), which is packed with natural nutrients as a fertilizer replacement for both gardens and lawns as dressing or the course variant (12mm), suitable for flower beds, pot-plants, planter boxes and other green areas.

 

What is Organic Compost

Grass Factory & Eco Organics CompostOrganic compost is an organic matter that has been decomposed and recycled as a fertilizer and soil amendment. Compost is a key ingredient in organic farming.

At the simplest level, the process of composting simply requires making a heap of wetted organic matter known as green waste (leaves, food waste) and waiting for the materials to break down into humus after a period of weeks or months.

Modern, methodical composting is a multi-step, closely monitored process with measured inputs of water, air, and carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials. The decomposition process is aided by shredding the plant matter, adding water and ensuring proper aeration by regularly turning the mixture. Worms and fungi further break up the material. Aerobic bacteria and fungi manage the chemical process by converting the inputs into heat, carbon dioxide and ammonium. The ammonium is the form of nitrogen (NH4) used by plants.

When available ammonium is not used by plants it is further converted by bacteria into nitrates (NO3) through the process of nitrification.

Compost can be rich in nutrients. It is used in gardens, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer, addition of vital humus orhumic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil.

In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation, wetland construction, and as landfill cover. Organic ingredients intended for composting can alternatively be used to generate biogas through anaerobic digestion.

Anaerobic digestion is fast overtaking composting in some parts of the world (especially central Europe) as a primary means of downcycling waste organic matter.
