One of the big benefits of making or using organic compost is that you really can't overuse it in your garden. Traditional fertilizers have to be carefully measured and applied to your lawn and garden because if they are overused, they can cause more harm than good. But with compost, you can be very liberal about piling it on top of the soil and raking it in, with no worries about harmful effects. So if you have a lot of compost, use it up -- your garden will thank you for it.
