How to deal with green or garden waste

To properly care for your lawn, make sure you understand the type of lawn that you’ve sown. Also, when you mow, limit the cover to about 1/3 of the grass.

This will decrease your edges and the quantity of green waste that you generate.

2. Composting Greens

Composting lawn clippings right on your lawn itself is a great way to keep the green waste on its own. This process creates mulch, which provides great nutrition for plants.

So the next time you mow those large backyard lawns, think about putting some of those grass clippings around the pants in the garden.

Apart from composting lawn cuttings, you may compost other natural waste, like weeds, from your garden. To do this, create a compost heap containing old food scraps and garden waste.

You will need to make sure your green waste pile is slightly damp and that air can flow through it. Over time, the pile will compost into mulch and deliver nutrients you can use again in your garden.


3. Vermicomposting

Vermicomposting is another way to reduce green waste. This kind of composting in which worms are utilized to produce compost out of food scraps. This process is useful for people who generate lots of food waste but don’t have enough garden space for composting.
