Even though it seems well digested and doesn't stink, what could possibly go wrong??? thanks in advance...
I was replying to this statement:
The bugs that you're looking at from the compost pile, will not very likely be living there when applied to the lawn, so to me the population existing in the pile is irrelevant... is that an error???
IMHO, your conclusion is incorrect. A certain portion of the microbial population will survive in the soil. The microbiology in the compost is very relevant and depending on it's make up will be detrimental, neutral or beneficial to soil and plant health.
