Compost that Pumpkin!

Fall is a great time to start backyard composting!

  • Composting reduces food scraps, leaves, and yard waste that would normally go to a landfill.
  • Composting provides a natural source of many nutrients not found in Colorado’s soils.
  • Compost saves water as it helps soil hold water longer.
  • If you do fertilize your lawn, consider using a natural fertilizer rather than harmful chemicals.
