The mulch is comprised of yard waste generated by local residents. Mulch is an excellent top dressing for gardens and landscapes, can reduce weed growth, and retains moisture. The fine leaf compost consists of ground leaves that were collected from the Town during the 2010 leaf season; this product has a very high nutritional content and can make an excellent soil amendment for new plantings, vegetables, and flower beds.
