Improve your soil
Warmer weather is great for giving your compost heap an extra boost. It’s also an environmentally friendly way to recycle any additional kitchen and garden waste generated over the summer months.
Adding compost to your garden beds helps nourish and enrich the soil by encouraging healthy microbial activity, as well as improinge its structure, drainage and moisture-holding ability. Add a good balance of ‘green’ matter - like vegetable peelings and lawn clippings, and ‘brown’ matter - like dry leaves, shredded newspaper and straw to the compost mix. For the best quality compost turn your heap every three to four days – air is important to the decomposition process and turning re-heats the pile to keep it in an aerobic state, as well as eliminate odours. Using a fork instead of a spade is the best choice for this task, as the tines help create additional passageways for air and moisture in the pile.
