WD Organics produces a leaf compost that is available for pick up or delivery in Joppa, MD from our parent company, Wirtz &
Leaf compost, however, is not normally considered a fertilizer as it is too low in nutrient content. It serves primarily as an
organic amendment and a soil conditioner. Sandy soils, such as loamy sands and sands, and soils with very high clay content
are improved the most by an increase in organic matter content. The added organic matter provides a food source for
desirable soil micro-organisms.
Drought damage to plants is reduced because of an increased water-holding capacity of the soils. Soil tilth is improved
making the soils easier to cultivate.
Overall, compost improves the physical, chemical, and biological properties of soils.
