Description

EcoGro® is a fully stabilized compost made from brewing waste, limb waste, and other non-manure feedstocks. A stable organic matter, it is a good source of nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and other nutrients essential for plant growth. These nutrients are made available to the plant roots in a slow release form. EcoGro® compost has a healthy population of naturally occurring microorganisms. These organisms improve soil structure, creating passageways in the soil for the movement of air, water, and nutrients. EcoGro® contains significant quantities of organic matter necessary for water retention and provides food for the soil organisms, which in turn “feed the plants.” It helps return many properties to the soil which have been lost over time and with use. This Class I compost can be used with all types of plants and soil (sandy to clay). By using EcoGro®, we help complete the ultimate recycling process.

EcoGrow® compost opens up heavy clay soils and allows water to percolate through tighter soils. On sandy more porous soils, compost helps hold water in the root zone where it is available for plant use.  EcoGrow® compost is on the Denver Waters approved soil amendment list and is the most important ingredient in creating a root zone that will retain and conserve water before sodding. Preparing the soil with EcoGrow® compost can reduce your water consumption by 20% to 40% in lawns and gardens and is essential to healthy plant growth.
