Compost and Mulch Options
Compost and mulch are great additions to any garden. If you're looking for sources of compost or mulch in our region, check out the California Integrated Waste Management Board Web site on Compost and Mulch Sources for Southern California. This is a good place to start your hunt for compost and mulch if going to the garden center doesn't fit the bill. The site includes a page on selecting mulch for home gardeners, as well as frequently asked mulch and compost questions.
