How will Revive work for me?
• Save on top soil, many people use Revive instead of buying topsoil
• Clay rich soil in your garden? Revive is perfect to open up the structure and ease workability and tilth
• Sandy soil? Aids in moisture retention
• A rich and readily available source of potassium, phosphorus and slow release nitrogen
• Combined with valuable trace elements reduces the need for artificial fertilisers
• When applied as a thick mulch, Revive acts as a good weed suppressant
• For those weeds that eventually make it through on your flower beds or borders – ease of weeding, without the need to use dangerous weed killers
• Spoil your lawn and be the envy of your neighbours, with a dense rich green turf
• Grow your own vegetables & herbs – construct raised beds and fill them with neat Revive above the soil profile. Revive contains enough natural nutrients to sustain home-grown crops without the need to add artificial fertilisers
• Bring on those beautiful blooms – Revive will sustain all flowering plants.

Practical benefits of using Revive green waste compost in your garden:
• Provides a good source of natural and valuable plant nutrients and trace elements
• Adds valuable organic matter and thus improves soil fertility
• Improves soil workability and improves soil tilth, thus reducing ploughing / cultivation / fuel costs, particularly in clayey soils
• Improved moisture retention in light soils and drainage in clayey soils
• Creates a good seed bed
• In mulching applications, reduces weed seed germination and also facilitates weeding activities
• Increases productivity and yields
• Increases soil microbiology by adding important microbes
• Adds essential carbon to the soil profile
