FOR THE HOME – COMPOST HEAP ADDITIVE

Compost Heap Trial

 
EnBac® B850 put to the test in the garden.

The Problem

Bio-Systems staff went all the way to our own back yard to prove that bioaugmentation of Compost Heaps is worthwhile. We set up two new compost bins.

The Solution

To both bins we added garden waste. We mixed about equal amounts of “green” waste (grass, leaves, nettles, weeds etc) which adds nitrogen, with “brown” waste (twigs and shredded branches) to add carbon, gradually throughout a year. Every fortnight we half-filled a watering can and then dropped into it one 25gm sachet of EnBac® B850. We sprinkled the contents of the watering can over the top of one compost bin.

The Results

The compost bin on the right, with the added EnBac® B850, has produced a much richer compost. The compost is darker, more crumbly and smells sweeter. More of the brown matter has degraded, so the compost is more thoroughly mixed and is ready for use in the garden.
