Eco-Friendly Yard Care

So I'm on a mission to return nutrients to my yard.  I was thinking about it and for the past several years I have been removing grass clippings (composting them, but then using them in flower beds) and throwing all of the leaves from the mature trees in the yard (recyled by the county).  So, no wonder the soil in the yard is like concrete...all of the nutrients have been stripped out.

Here are some places to get more info and tools.

GardenWeb - Good gardening site. Search for organic lawncare, composting, etc.
Peaceful Valley Farm Supply - Organic fertilizers and insect predators
gat.jpgJacks Small Engines - Good place to get Gator Blades for your mower.   They work well.  Here's another site that has a good description of these blades.
