Backyard Composting

Backyard composting is a simple way to reduce the amount of waste that you place at the curb each week. Composting is a process that turns kitchen and yard waste into a dark, nutrient-rich soil called humus. The soil that is produced can be used to promote weed and erosion control, protects plant roots from sun/wind damage, conserves water, increases water retention in sandy soils, aids drainage in clay, and reduces soil diseases. By returning nutrients back to the soil, compost reduces the need for expensive chemical fertilizers.
