Here’s a quick and easy project that will get you started right now. Collect the leaves and grass from your yard—and your neighbors’ yards! Leaves = carbon. Grass = nitrogen. Carbon + Nitrogen = a high quality, humus-rich compost blend that is the ideal additive to your gardens and landscaping beds. No need to burn the leaves or drop them at the curb for the trash service to haul. Plus, with the 2013 changes expected from Johnson Country waste management services (yard waste not allowed), here’s a solution to save you money, contribute to our environment, and minimize additions to the landfill. Create a simple compost bin from old pallets and a few t-posts. If you need help with it, give us a call and we’ll give you simple steps to put it all together or just do it all for you. Or if you can’t compost on your property, you can still till in the leaves directly into your garden beds to increase the organic matter, soil structure, and nutrient levels of your soil.
