Probably the most ideal approaches to help your terrace garden develop organically without an excess of reliance of artificial manures is through composting. Compost is rotted natural material utilised as manure for developing plants.

It is normally a combination of vegetable manure and matter that, for the better results, is added to the soil. For your terrace yard, here are 5 reasons why you should use Organic Compost:

- For Improved Soil Media Consistency:

Not only does compost help to enhance the nutrition of the soil, but also the structure of the plant. It steadily extracts the nutrients over a period of months or years, ensuring that protein is year-round in the soil. It also softens the soil to make the pores to open up to daylight, air and humidity, enabling the soil nutrients to be stored and water received.

- Enhances plant health:

It has been accepted that composting absorbs the odours and treats all organic molecules in the soil. It prohibits the soil nutrients that the plant receives from accessing the heavy metals. Compost offers a useful soil medium for the plant, which helps these microbes to survive without disrupting the plant's water supply. It provides the soil media a normal 'vaccine' that lacks a more sterile soil.

- In order to prevent surface runoffs:

The soil is flooded with nutrients and minerals using artificial fertilisers, and much of this is spilled out as waste along with toxic chemical compounds. If these are accumulated in local water sources, algae growth on the water surface is boosted, which can be detrimental in several respects. Since compost is a gradual-releasing organic fertiliser, when we use compost, this concern does not occur.

- Saves energy along with resources:

Use of compost reduces the usage of water, energy, fuel etc. When compost is added to soil media, as the soil is softened and has much more moisture-retaining potential, less water is needed. As previously stated, because the quality of nutrients given by compost is much superior to chemical fertilisers and pesticides, their usage and the runoff and adverse consequences that come with them are therefore minimised and energy and water are maintained.

- Redirects food waste from landfills:

Composting is also a method of waste management and recycling, significantly reducing the strain-on landfills as well as the fuel needed for the transport of food waste. Because composting prevents all odours and only brings in the soil nutrients, it redirects food waste from landfills. The advantages of composting are undoubtedly limitless. This is a simple to use, ecologically sustainable, and cost-effective way to take care of your plants.

Bottom Line:

Get going with your own method of composting and then see your garden flourish!!
