You will need

  • Compost pile
  • Amended soil
  • Pest control strategy

Step 1 Start a compost pile Start a compost pile. Layer it with equal parts of brown matter — for example, straw and dry leaves — and green matter, such as grass clippings, kitchen scraps, and manure. Keep the pile wet, and turn it occasionally.

Step 2 Build your soil Build your soil. Add compost and amend it with organic fertilizers like fish emulsions, seaweed extracts, and bone meal.

Step 3 Remove pests Remove pests by hand or by blasting them with water, before they have a chance to multiply. If pests do get out of control, try using soapy water or a blend of pepper and water.
