are great ways to make sure your home looks its best.

Leaves: You can use the leaves from your yard as a great, free and natural mulch. You’ll want to shred them though to avoid matting. These are a great option in the winter time.

Grass clippings: thin layers of untreated grass clippings can make a great mulch. Grass in particular is very effective in adding just the right amount of nitrogen to your soil. Here’s another tip: make sure the grass is totally dry, too. This will keep it from rotting.

Compost: Compost can be created from natural wastes in your home. For example, coffee grounds are a great compost you can use in your garden. Think of compost as a moisturizing for your garden, it also helps your plants retain nutrients, too! Not to mention, composting is a great way to go green!
