Who we are and what we do

We understand that providing a safe environment for family is of the utmost of importance, and we a dedicated to ensuring that our customers are provided with a natural organic compost and are proudly HACCP certified.
What makes us different
A proper soil structure with the application of a premium thermal compost, is achieved when all organisms such as beneficial bacteria and fungi are present. With these organisms present and interacting, plants are provided with the tools to suppress disease, retain nutrients that already exists in the ground and build a better soil structure for the plant. The use of non-natural or non-organic growing methods, can kill the beneficial organisms a natural premium compost can bring. The result is a sterile soil structure which introduces disease and nutrients deficiencies.
A premium compost provided by Clyde Compost, allows nutrients to be in the converted form for the plant to absorb immediately. However, synthetic forms of fertiliser need to be converted into plant available food. If there are no active microbes, the plant suffers, your yields reduce, or there will be nothing to harvest. A compromised non-organic soil structure allows nutrients to leach through the soil or evaporates off in warmer conditions. A proper soil structure introduced using Clyde Compost’s natural organic premium compost allows for the retention of nutrients, decreasing the need for fertilisers. When you build the right soil structure using Clyde Compost, you use less water and decrease the need for fertilisers.
