How to compost garden waste at home?

To compost your garden waste, you must first choose a suitable site to start your compost heap. You must choose a space that will not be subjected to extreme temperatures or moisture, as the micro-organisms necessary for compost must have constant conditions. If you are using a compost bin, ensure it has a stable surface to sit on.

You can now start composting your garden waste. Ideally, your compost heap should have at least 25% of green materials to, such as grass clippings and annual weeds, to feed the micro-organisms, but no more than 50%. Other common composting materials you can add include shredded hedge trimmings, woodchips, and straw. Once you have started your compost heap you should turn it regularly to ensure it remains aerated.

What are the 3 types of compost?

The three types of compost are aerobic, anaerobic and vermicomposting. Aerobic composting introduces air to the compost mix to enable it to break down materials quickly. On the other hand, anaerobic composting is a low-effort option that involves collecting scraps of waste in a common compost heap. Finally, vermicomposting adds worms alongside moisture and oxygen to break down organic materials with little odour.

Can I put compost directly in my garden?

Yes, you can put compost directly in your garden - and it’s rather beneficial to do so. Burying your compost directly in your garden beds reduces the time and energy you need to spend on composting. Or you can apply your compost directly to the ground for results that are just as good.
