I would highly recommend looking into composting as it helps decrease waste and can also add tons of nutrients and beneficial microorganisms when you amend soil with it. It isn’t difficult to start a pile whether you make a DIY compost pile or just section off the area with some cement bins.
If you are considering making a compost pile, we recommend that you have a couple of them so that you can have compost that is in different stages of maturity and will always have some compost that is ready to be used to enrich your soil. Also, I would encourage you to put your pile near your house so that you are not hauling garbage far away as it will become a hassle really fast
You can also try vermicomposting, which is another way to truly add tons of nutrients into your soil.
