A beautiful yard can enhance any home, but it also can create a large amount of waste. Yard waste contributes 15-20% of the waste put into landfills.

By composting other yard wastes, one creates a valuable natural fertilizer and soil amendment with little effort. Simple guidelines are given and demonstrated. Available for loan.
