The Composting Process

At Indian Summer Recycling, leaves and grass are mixed together in equal measure. Windrows are formed that encourage the biological process which will turn the material into a productive soil amendment. During this process the internal temperatures of the windrows will reach in excess of 150°F. At these temperatures pathogens and weed seeds are killed.

After eighteen months of processing the material is screened. The result is a consistent light soil with a balanced pH, the water retention capability of peat moss and the nutrient value of a good fertilizer. Whether you are trying this product for the first time or using it regularly, you and your client will see results.
