3 Compost Techniques Everyone Should Know

Composting is the best way to make sure your garden gets all of its nutrients. Many people don’t usually add compost, but this helps plants get a healthy dose from just composting alone!

If you want your vegetables to grow well, make sure they are in the best possible conditions. Even with good seeds and fertilizers there will be no success unless soil lacks nutrients. And by adding just a little compost you can improve your soil quality.

To make sure that the right nutrients are present in your compost, follow these three easy steps!

Trench Composting

The easiest way to add nutrients into your soil is by using this method of composting. It works best in the off season when you don’t have much planted, but it can also be used anytime if there are fresh materials like kitchen scraps or grass clippings that need disposal!

Dig a hole about 18 inches deep and put these materials in it. These will add the needed nutrients for your soil, making planting time healthier!

Compost Pile

Another easy solution is to always have some compost piles going. Take all of the items I mentioned above under “Trench Composting” and throw them into a pile! Keep this moist by watering it from time-to-time, turn over with your pitchfork once in awhile so that there’s fresh air for decomposition.

You can speed the break down process by adding it to soil before planting. Mixing in will help your plants grow faster and more abundantly this season!


One great solution would be to add valuable nutrients into your soil. Many experts claim that vermicompost is the best compost out there, and I agree with them! It’s nothing more than work castings that worms are eating, in order give black gold worm castings.

For those gardeners that grow plenty of items in pots, vermicompost is a more practical method. Add it to your potting soil or peat-based mix and watch as they flourish with nutrients!

Now that you have learned these three techniques, how will your garden look now?
