Using Your Compost
Finished compost resembles dark, crumbly topsoil and should bear no resemblance to the original materials. Compost should have a pleasant, earthy smell to it.
There are a range of ways to utilize your finished compost. You can mix it into your flower and vegetable beds, blend it with potting soil to revitalize indoor plants, or spread it on your lawn as a fertilizer. Follow these links for specific guidance on how best to work with compost given the different types of plantings you are looking to ammend.
