what a waste

Here in England the rain comes down, the sun shines and the grass grows.

What a pity to see people bagging their grass cuttings and putting them in the bin. This unnecessary waste can be stopped and the fertility of the garden improved by using the grass cuttings to boost soil fertility.

Here, clematis 'arabella' has had a mulch of grass cuttings.

The mulch will retain moisture in the soil. As the grass cuttings are easily incorporated by worms and full of nutrients, the clematis will get an extra fertility boost.

And the garden is not creating waste for someone else to manage. We all win.
