Compost Information for Landscape Architects
The US Composting Council seeks to spread the word that COMPOST is the Sustainable Solution. Compost reduces environmental impacts from development and improves the health of the soil. We want to increase the Best Practices that protect native soil, sustain plant life, filter and retain water, while trapping metals and nutrients. Compost can protect and restore soils while reducing stormwater runoff.
The Council’s work in developing training materials, educating professionals and the public, promoting best management practices in composting, enhancing product quality and developing markets are essential for building healthy soil.
