Green Garden

Composting is a process. Organic materials like yard waste breakdown in the composting process, which can then be used to add nutrients back into soil. It is great for flower and vegetable gardens, and, most importantly, it protects our local waterways.

- Check out the KNB Composting Guide to learn how easy it is to compost yard waste.

- Mulch mow leaves instead of bagging them. Leaves contain all the nutrients your soil needs, will help retain moisture and heat, and mulch mowing will help you save money on yard waste bags. Learn more about mulching vs. not mulching and grass-cycling.
