Green Tip:

Set the blades on your lawn mower to the highest possible height - Longer grass grows deeper roots, and helps shade the soil enough to prevent water evaporation.

Never use unfinished compost

You will know that your compost is done when it is dark brown in colour, looks like crumbly soil, and has a rich, earthy smell to it. You don’t ever want to use compost that isn’t completely finished, as it will just take nutrients from the soil instead of adding nutrients to it. This can harm your plants. Before using your compost, you may want to spread it out on a tarp to dry the compost out. Alternatively, you can screen your compost by passing it through a small-gauge fencing material to remove any large pieces from the compost. Any pieces that aren’t finished can be re-added to your composter.
