Vision Comp OMRI Listed Compost
“Vision Comp” is Vision Recycling’s certified compost. We use only clean green materials and do not use manures in our products. Our compost is created under ideal conditions in rows that are only 4 feet high. This allows us to manage temperatures much more closely than compost created in larger rows. Vision Comp is OMRI listed and has the US Composting Council’s Seal of Testing Assurance.
The benefit of compost to soil and plants cannot be understated. Compost is a source of slow release plant nutrients and increases the soils ability to hold onto nutrients if you fertilize in the future. This means Vision Comp will increase plant foliage growth, root development, flowering and fruiting. Compost improves soil water holding capacity, improves soil fertility, improves soil structure, increases resistance to erosion, increases carbon sequestration and enhances plant vigor. Compost can be the difference between a vibrant garden and a struggling one. Before you install a new landscape or plant new plants, make sure you add compost. A small investment in improving your soil with the addition of compost will pay off for many years to come.
Planter’s Mix is a topsoil blend that can be used to plant in directly. The addition of OMRI listed organic compost to this blend makes it a rich and fertile soil for your landscape plantings. Use for raised beds, raising soil levels, grading, houseplants, starting seedlings, and generally anywhere you need to plant.
Vision Recycling’s Soil Amendment is pre-composted material which is generally applied as a top dressing that will break down slowly and provide certain nutrients while also acting as a fine mulch. Our Soil Amendment will provide phosphorus, and potassium among other nutrients, as well as increase the organic matter content of the soil, though it does not provide much nitrogen. This product is great as a low cost ground cover that does double duty in adding organic matter to the soil while providing the benefits of a mulch at the same time.
