Soil Incorporation

Soil incorporation is beneficial to your garden.

All the hard work pays off here! After waiting, the decomposed food scraps have turned into valuable nutrients for your soil.

This nutrient-rich soil helps feed and nurture the plants already in your garden and those you will plant in the future. If you buried your food scraps in a single hole, consider spreading your new enriched soil out over a flowerbed or garden to help distribute the nutrients. Alternatively, if you buried your food scraps in a trench in your garden or around trees or shrubs, you can sit back and watch your garden and yard flourish. Either way, the result is a beneficial and healthy product for you and the environment.
