Lawn & Gardening Tips : How to Make Compost


I’m Bill Elzey with Showplace Lawns. How to
make compost. Well there is a variety of ways but one of the best ways I have found is to
take the yard clippings, the leaves and all the different parts of yard trash, put them
in a pile, make sure that it can get some air, and let them sit. In this particular
case what I also have done and it works is I have thrown some organic fertilizer in in
some layers, we have thrown some dry molasses in in layers and then we turn it a little
bit occasionally. After a year it turns to a good compost. We have used this. This is
this Spring’s leaves and grass. It will be ready for next Spring. We don’t really put
a lot of fuss into it. We just put it back here and leave it. Like I said there are lots
of different ways of doing that. Compost should account for about 25% of your soil in your
bed areas and even in your lawn but this makes a really great compost with the leaves, the
grass clippings, old plants and just let it sit. Throw a little water on it occasionally
and you have got a good compost. Now also as I have said there are other ways you can
get more involved with it but our simple method of dumping it in here, having it to where
it gets some air and throwing some water on it works really well.
