I do my own composting, not enough for use on all my clients but as far as I know as long as the compost smells "alive" and not "dead" or rotting it is good. Smelling "alive" has a rich earthy type smell and it smells good....to me at least. this means you have a healthy ratio of microbes to rotting material. After spreading it on lawn it does not stop rotting, (rotting just makes it easier for the microbes to break it down). So the microbes still being with the spreaded compost continue to break down the compost into the raw nutrients that feed the lawn. I am no expert but have done a lot of research...just my 2 pennys
