One of the best gifts I’ve ever received was my composting drum. It has helped our household to significantly reduce the amount of waste we put out at the curb each week, and it is the best for keeping our plants healthy and growing. It’s sort of like making vitamins for your plants. We don’t have a huge yard or massive landscaped beds, but what we do have looks great- and I know its the compost.
So yes, I’m a huge proponent of composting. It’s very easy and efficient. There are composting bins for every budget and every size yard. This one works great for us: http://www.planetnatural.com/site/envirocycle-composter
