Compost should be worked into the soil (eventually, at least) to make it more fertile. Mulch, by contrast, is spread atop the soil, both to protect the soil from the elements and to suppress weeds. While it is true that organic mulches will eventually decompose, thereby themselves becoming compost, their function as long as they serve as mulch is distinct from the function of compost.

What can I do to keep snakes away?


1. Learn more about the snakes in your area. Certain snakes are indigenous to certain regions, and some are more dangerous than others. Garter snakes can actually be helpful to a garden and tend to stay away from people. Other snakes, like rattlesnakes, are more dangerous and are best to keep out of the yard. Knowing the sort of snakes you are likely to find can help ease your anxieties about the necessity of keeping snakes away or may make you more aware of how important the action is.
  • Moreover, while snake behavior is generally the same across the board, some preferred hiding spots and food sources do vary slightly from species to species. Knowing which types of snakes to focus your efforts on will help you to focus your snake repelling efforts more effectively.
2. Keep your yard free of clutter.[1] Clutter is essentially an open invitation to snakes because it provides a warm, dark place for them to hide. Piles of leaves, compost piles, straw mulch, wood chip mulch, stacks of firewood, and piles of cut grass are all comfortable places that snakes like to hide in, so these should be removed from your yard.
3. Avoid tall-growing plants. Just like clutter, certain shrubs and other plants provide the perfect hiding spot for a neighborhood snake. Keeping your grass mowed is a good way to prevent snakes from slithering around your yard. Shrubs and packed gardens with thick plants will also attract snakes. If you are very concerned about a potential snake problem, remove or thin these plants out. If you want to keep these plants, however, consider transplanting them to the far side of your yard, away from the foundation of your house. How to Keep Snakes Away

Can I add establsihed anaerobic compost to a new aerobic pile?


Basically, to make aerobic compost, you simply gather organic material put it into a bin or a heap in the garden, aerate it and then add it to your soil. However, in reality, aerobic composting is a little more involved than just that. The right quantity and types of materials you put into your compost heap makes a big difference to the quality and composting time of the resulting composted feedstock.
You need to think of your compost heap as a complete self-contained ecosystem full of aerobic microbes, and to survive, this ecosystem needs the right mix of ingredients such as "Oxygen" (from the air), "Water", "Warmth" and "Food" (from the composting materials), with the quality of the resulting compost depending on how well you control these four factors.
Decaying organic matter is a favorite haunt for many animals and insects with the redworm (also known as Red Wriggler Worms) or the night crawler worms being the most important. Both red-worms, night-crawlers and even garden worms can eat vast quantities of decaying vegetation at one end and due to their digestive system, excrete from the other end organic compounds that enrich the composted feedstock, while their burrowing actions help separate and aerate the compost at the same time.
But as well as redworms worms, naturally occurring active micro-organisms (mainly bacteria, aerobic microbes, and fungi) do most of the hard work of breaking down the large organic materials into a fine compost material. All you have to do is provide them with the right conditions to grow and multiply and they will do all the work for you.

Is there any way to recycle cat litter?


There are a few ways in which cat litter can be reused:

  • to clean up spilt oil (perhaps in the garage or driveway) - simply sprinkle some cat litter on top and let it absorb the oil
  • fill up small sink holes in your garden
  • if you use a wood/wheat based cat litter you can spread it as mulch
  • if the litter is made of natural ingredients, it can be added to your compost

Vacuum or Blower?


* Blowers perform the single, simple function of blowing material. * Blower/vacuum combinations combine the blower function with a vacuum feature. Leaves or debris can be directed into an attached bag, which makes this type of unit great for vacuuming leaves from shrubs. An additional mulching feature is available on some leaf blower/vacuums. Mulched lawn debris can be used in compost piles or bagged for disposal. Most convert easily from blowing to vacuuming mode.
