An understanding of composting, the biological decomposition of organic matter, is necessary for both the backyard and municipal system composter. Time, volume, type, use and end product quality are considerations in the composting process. Such a project can result in a high-quality compost that has value both as a product for home use and commercial market demand for landscapers, golf courses, nurseries, etc.
