Composted garden organics screened to a fine texture that helps soil structure and helps soil hold moisture.
SOILCO GO Compost Premium (AS4454) is a certified composted blend of garden organics, designed for use as a soil improver. It is applied by digging or cultivating into existing soil, and is suited for use in either domestic or commercial gardening and landscaping.
The organic matter contained in soil is essential for a flourishing garden. It feeds the soil which in turn feeds growing plants, reducing the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic matter is depleted through harvesting, erosion and cultivation so must be replaced regularly to maintain soil health.

- Builds soil physically, chemically and biologically
- Increases water holding in poor and sandy soils.
- Increases the water retention of soil
- Opens up clay soils and eases compaction
- Helps retain fertilisers
- Improves structure and drainage
