[ARCHIVED] Composting Tips and Guidelines

Spring is here...and so is that growing pile of garden/yard waste from winter and last year. With the surge in yard waste and garden waste being generated at your home, it's often a challenge and sometimes expensive to get rid of it all. One strategy to try is to make good use of the bio material from leaves and last year's flower bed and garden. This can be done through composting.

Composting is a natural process going on right now in your garden, flower bed and lawn. Decomposition of organic material is happening all the time. It is nature’s way of recycling organic materials back into the soil or garden. The cycle of life continues at the micro-organism level, with billions of living organisms in healthy soil transforming dead plants into vital nutrients for new plant growth. Composting is a process you can use to improve your garden and lawn soil to maximum health and productivity.

For your information, we have provided you with a link to the EPA Composting Guide brochure that will help to get your started. With a small investment in time, you can make good use of your clippings and garden waste, save money on fertilizers and mulch, all while preserving natural resources and making them work for you.
