Compost Yard    Compost at home


Composting is a great way to dispose of yard waste and other organic material. Composting is basically replicating and speeding up the natural decomposition process.


It’s okay, let it lay. Mulching is also a great way to dispose of yard waste. Mulching mowers finely chop clippings. The clippings naturally feed your lawn when they decompose. You should mow your grass to 2-3” in height and only remove about 1/3 of the blade height. This may mean you will be mulch mowing every five days. Mulching is the best way to dispose of grass clippings. You may be able to buy a kit to convert your current mower.
