Attracting beneficial insects to your yard will help naturally combat pests and encourage the pollination of plants. The addition of certain plants to your garden will help to attract a healthy population of these insects and reduce the need for chemical pesticides. Compost can reduce the need for chemicals as well, as it is a great way to organically fertilize your plants and ward off weeds. Composting also decreases the amount of solid waste we produce, promotes healthy plant growth, and restores nutrients in the soil.
