Seminar Description:
Building healthy soil with compost increases water infiltration and water holding capacity by many times, when used properly. The resulting combination of organic matter and microbes holds on to the water, nutrients, feeding plants more efficiently. Building landscape soils with compost: • Builds and maintains your soil organic matter from less than 1% in subsoils to greater than 5%  • Allows water to enter the soil more easily, better water infiltration and water holding • Decreases or eliminates irrigation, depending on the plant types • Builds a lush landscape, including turf grass, with over 2/3 the needed water. Creates happier landscape customers.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand how everyone, especially landscape professionals, are part of the organics recycling process with compost.
2. Determine how much water can be captured, infiltrated, and conserved on your landscapes by building healthy soil with compost.
3. Extend your landscape pallet by amending your landscape zones with compost
4. Introduction to how biology creates the rain as well.
