This level of product quality control is what has made premium organic compost by Whittier Fertilizer popular for residential and commercial clients alike!

Premium organic compost can be used for:

  • Aesthetic and nutrient-focused landscaping
  • Potting and planting needs
  • And much more!

What is Organic Compost?

The idea of organic compost is nothing new. Since the beginning of time, plant-life has thrived off the nutrients provided by decomposition. Compost mixes create a favorable environment for microorganisms such as viruses, phages, bacteria, algae, nematodes, insects, earthworms, and much more! Sounds gross? No worries – these are beneficial microorganisms! By using organic waste and controlling what is mixed into the compost, we can create top quality fertilizer that is beneficial for plants and completely safe for humans!

While our mixes are guaranteed to help your gardening needs, at Whittier Fertilizer, we understand that every client is different and has unique needs. This is why we offer customized compost mix options that allow you to acquire exactly what you need for your landscape. Instead of trusting a generic mix of manure, food waste, and leaves, seek the quality organic compost that Whittier Fertilizer provides!

Who Needs Organic Compost?

Anyone seeking to enhance their gardening and landscaping efforts would benefit from premium organic compost by Whittier Fertilizer. Both commercial and residential clients will witness noticeable differences in plant-life health. While quality organic compost provides a fresh and earthy aesthetic to the landscape, it’s important to note that organic compost is different from mulch. While mulch can be compost, compost in itself refers to the results of organic decomposition.

Because the nutrients come from old grass shavings, leaves, clean kitchen scraps, and other safe sources, you can rely on all natural nutrient sources instead of processed chemicals. This results in a healthier garden that your guests will notice and appreciate. Furthermore, by choosing premium organic compost by Whittier Fertilizer, you know that you’re supporting a cleaner and more sustainable environment.

In fact, at Whittier Fertilizer we pride ourselves on our ability to collect and recycle green organic materials. Our powerful grinder pulverizes and screens aged and composted materials. Because we complete our organic compost mixes internally, we have great quality control and know exactly what is being mixed into the compost. By doing this, we avoid harmful contamination and bad odors.

When is Organic Compost Needed?

The two prime times to use organic compost for your residential or commercial landscaping needs are during the late fall and early spring. By incorporating compost each time you plant a plant or renovate the landscape, you’re ensuring natural health and beauty. If you have specific needs, feel free to work with one of our experts to create a customized mix that fulfills your gardening needs! With Whittier Fertilizer’s premium organic compost, you will find your landscape enriched!

More About Organic Compost

Compost is comprised of organic materials that are left over from plants and animals. Compost is very important and plays a key role in gardening and landscaping. Not only does it provide added nutrients to your soil, but it can also act as a moisture stabilizer and weed suppressant that will result in a better environment for your plants to grow and flourish.

Composting has been occurring naturally since the beginning of time. Plant-life thrive off the nutrients and organisms that are produced through decomposition. Here at Whittier Fertilizer, we know that everyone’s gardens and landscapes are different and therefore require different materials , so if you are looking for help and/or advice, you can work with one of our experts and create a custom compost mix that is guaranteed to help with your gardening needs.

Compost is incorporated into the soil in late fall or early spring or each time you plant as a soil amendment. Composting is not mulching, but mulch can be compost, as compost simply refers to the end product of any organic decomposition. Compost may consist of nearly any organic material including old grass clippings, fallen leaves from trees, kitchen scraps (but not meats, cheeses or oils). As the material slowly decomposes, the soil becomes more nutrient rich and plants thrive.
