Compost process require the emphasizes of nitrogen ratio, the C:N ratio and calcium. So what makes calcium to be important at composting process? One product of the breakdown of organic matter by bacteria is organic acids.

These organic ingredients could be found for free inside the soil, usually hidden under the stone. Stone itself have many different function, one of it is for your basic home structure foundation. Instantly improves the appearance of your landscape and building home with natural and manufactured stone.

In a well aerated compost pile, these organic acids are themselves broken down in the later stages of the composting process, but if there is any shortage of oxygen, they can begin to accumulate, making the compost acidic. This is a problem because bacteria do not like acidic conditions at all.

It’s hard to believe just how many benefits compost provides for soil. Even when spread on the surface as a mulch, and long before it actually enters the soil, compost helps to suppress weeds, retains soil moisture in dry conditions, and protects soil from the damaging effects of wind and heavy rain.

But it’s when organic matter gets into the soil that it really starts to work its magic. Soil structure depends almost entirely on organic matter. In healthy soil, the organic humus and inert mineral particles are stuck together in tiny crumbs a fraction of an inch across. These crumbs are held together by fine fungal strands, or hyphae, and by organic glues produced by trillions of bacteria.

The body of an adult human, if exposed to the elements, is reduced to a mere skeleton in about three weeks. The bones last longer, but not a great deal.

Humus is a mixture of the highly altered remains of the original organic matter whether from plants or animals that arrives at the soil surface, as well as new compounds made by bacteria and fungi. But only a small fraction of the original material is destined to become humus. Most simply disappears, turned back into the carbon dioxide (CO2), water, and mineral salts from which it was first made.
