BACKYARD COMPOSTING

Compost is a dark, crumbly and earthy - smelling form of organic matter that has gone through a natural decomposition process.

THE BENEFITS OF COMPOSTING

  • Reduces Solid Waste - Compost yard waste instead of sending it to a landfill.
  • Improves Soil Quality - Compost helps protect soil from erosion and compaction.
  • Improves Water Quality - Compost helps make yards and gardens healthier without using chemicals that may pollute groundwater, creeks, streams, and lakes.
  • Conserves Water - Compost improves soil so that water penetrates more easily and stays in the soil longer which means less watering.
  • Fertilizes Soil - Compost feeds and nourishes the plants AND the soil.
