Composting is a natural, environmentally friendly method for turning yard waste into nutrient-rich food to help your garden bloom. Think of it as nature's fertilizer. Among its other attractions is the fact that it's free--or at least extremely inexpensive.
Composting is good for the environment because it reduces the waste stream ultimately destined for landfills, where the waste emits methane, which is harmful for the environment. It's also good for your garden, as it maintains moisture levels, improves soil structure and helps prevent plant disease.
