Hello, I’m Tim, and I am the guy behind CompostingBasics.com. I have been involved in the landscaping and lawn and garden industry for more than 25 years now.
But when I really think about it, I have been involved in the industry for more than 40 years. My joy of gardening and my drive for entrepreneurship stems, I believe, from my parents as my father had the gift of a green thumb and both he and my mother started their own garden center and lawn care business back in the late 1960s and carried that business for 40 years
It was working in that business where I learned everything about the best ways to look after the lawn and garden while not relying on chemicals to solve all the problems but instead, finding natural solutions that were more environmentally friendly and effective.
It was during those many years in the lawn and garden industry that I realized I had a knack for producing compost effectively. I spent a lot of time helping some of our customers rejuvenate their compost piles and bins, and some even created multi-bin systems for their large properties.
And now, I’ve decided to put that knowledge together and to learn more as we go on, creating the best compost possible for our lawn and garden projects, reducing the need for chemicals where possible and reducing the amount of material going to the landfill.
Even though this site isn’t huge, it is all written by me and will always cover the topis and questions that people have asked me over the years.
Please feel free to contact me and let me know if there are any topics you feel may be missing.
Thanks for stopping by!
