Compost is made from materials such as uncooked kitchen scraps, leaves, grass clippings, twigs, and untreated paper/cardboard. Over time, these materials decompose to create compost.
Once ready, you can add your compost to your flower beds, or containers. Compost improves your soil by adding nutrients to it and will help your plants thrive. It will also reduce weeds by adding a barrier between the soil and the light from the sun.
Another major benefit of adding compost to your soil is that it will help retain the moisture in your soil which will result in less watering.
