    Grass clippings! It's not immediate, but over several years they break down and create a wonderful black loam. I use them as mulch on my beds to prevent weeds between my plants. Just don't use any chemical pesticides on your lawn! Sometimes you neighbors will let you have theirs too because they put them out for the trash.

    Beware of lawn clippings if a weed killer was used. I mix peat moss and compost into the soil.
