Compost adds organic matter to your soil, which greatly improves the ability of soil to retain water and nutrients, and helps soil particles bind together to form structure, in which water, air and roots can move freely. It also feeds beneficial soil microbes and fungi which in turn break down and transport nutrients to the roots.
