Yard-waste compost is probably the best soil amendment for your garden, and it is available in your own backyard with minimal investment of time and money. Composting is a natural process where waste organic matter (such as fall leaves) is recycled and decomposed by microorganisms into a dark-brown, nutrient-rich material.
