COMPOSTING:

 

Composting is essentially the equivalent of all the healthy stuff in the soil or (humus) which sustains plant life.  If you want to retain moisture, and nutrients into your soil, composting is a method that will do just that.

 

It is estimated that a single family will throw away at least 200 pounds of vegetation that could be used in our gardens every year.  Multiply that number by a million families and you certainly can picture the amount of composting that could be occurring daily.

 

Implementing a compost pile into your Fort Collins landscape project is a great step towards preparing for your garden, plus composting will also help save the planet!

 

There are many helpful kits and packages in your local areas that you can purchase to help you get started in conserving wasted vegetation and then converting it into compost for your gardens.  There are many options to choose from!  Remember, proper layers added to your compost piles are essential in achieving the best results possible.  Setting up your very own compost will help you to appreciate the environment and its surroundings.  Composting will also help you see the effects and benefits received in your flowerbeds and vegetable gardens when used properly.
