Creating Compost
1 of 8
Don’t have a compost pile yet? Well get started, it's easy! Composting is a great way to give fallen leaves, grass clippings, kitchen veggie scraps and garden trimmings a productive use. Compost is excellent when mixed in with soil before planting, and makes great mulch when your garden has already been started. Make sure your compost gets to at least 160° F, essential for destroying weed seeds, which is important when using the compost as mulch.
