Composting your hillside..

lovelycherry(Z7 Long Island)October 30, 2006

I want to recommend composting and mulching your garden hillside. composting/mulching has been shown to decrease soil erosion. Yard waste, leaves, old sod and anything else will help keep the soil healthy. Healthy soil has microorganisms that hold the soil structure together.
