Backyard composting is simple and will allow you to create your own compost, a soil amendment that when added to your garden will make your soil more nutrient-rich and more resistant to droughts.

One of the best ways that you can improve water quality in Fridley is to let water return into the ground naturally rather than runoff into the stormsewer. Raingardens are planted basins that are designed to capture and treat water. Raingardens can also add beautiful landscaping to your yard. When water filters through a raingarden, pollutants are removed allowing it to reach our waters clean and cool.
