Composting

Is your garden looking like it ran out of fuel? Composting may be your solution. When you add composting to your garden it can restore your soil and give it that nutrience needed to help your garden thrive!

 

What about the smell?

Some people worry that having a compost pile means you have to deal with the smell of rotting food. There is an easy solution to this initial worry. By adding a layer of dirt to the top of your compost it will help reduce any odor.
