Turn Your Green Waste Into Gold
Tired of taking garden waste to the tip? Turn leaves, prunings and plant trimmings into nature's gold by recycling them at home as compost or mulch.
For volumes of waste, a quality chipper or garden shredder is a sound investment and the right machine will pay dividends for years ahead. Choose a machine to suit your garden and tasks; check safety features and quality, blade systems and power. Seek expert advice before you buy and enjoy nature's gold for seasons to come.
Composting Tips :
- Locate your compost heap in a semi-shaded area, protected from the wind and with space to collect, sort and shred waste.
- Shred or chip material for composting to boost decomposition. The increased surface area is more easily attacked by microbes and other decomposition agents.
- Mix coarse, shredded, ‘carbon-based' material like twigs and branches with soft green nitrogenous waste such as flowering shrubs and leaves. This ensures good composition to improve compost's fertilizing qualities.
