How To Get Better Result Of Compositing And The Organic Gardening

Compositing is the most respected technique that must be adopted by all the gardeners. The question is which materials to be used in the compositing.

Well theories tell us that we can use any organic material in composting, but in real life it is not really as simple as it seems.

In compost pile several organic materials cannot be used, as you do not have pretty knowledge that how much of its quantity be required, only experts can do that.

In this article I will try to let you understand that which materials must not be used in the compost and which can be used in compost.

The composters at home can use numbers of materials that are available in their kitchen and the backyard. The industrial composters however, have benefit over us because they are entertained with the large number of waste materials from the industries that can be used in the compost.

Another thing they do not need to worry about the smell coming out from the compost pile. But if the compositing pile at your backyard will start stinking, you in that case has to face the taunting from the neighbors as well as the other family members.

You can though use the materials from the lawn that are dying to be disposed. These can be the extra grass, grass clippings can be used in the compost pile in the backyard. Hay can also be used if you do not of grass clippings.

The usage of hay is mostly practiced by the farmers in the compositing. Farmers always want to dispose of the hays. But make sure that if you are using the hay, pick only the green ones that are rich in nitrogen.

Vegetable peels, fruit rinds, tea bags, eggshells and coffee grounds can be used from the kitchens that are also enriched with the nitrogen. This will attract the pest that is why you must have take measures in stopping the pests.

Compost pile can also include the wood chips, wood shaving, saw dusts, paper, and other wood products. But be-aware not to use the chemically treated woods in the compost pile it can be dangerous for the soil.

Things that must be avoided to be the part of the compost piles are the plants that are died due to some disease. The died infected plants are most like to infect the future plants as well.

The waste from the humans, dogs and cats must also not be included in the compost pile as they can contain diseases. These diseases than can become the cause of making the other people sick by affecting the plants.  

Although the grasses can be used in the compost pile, but try to include the grass that can grow in the compost pile. Do not include the weeds like morning glory, ivy, sheep, and kinds of grasses, these can re-grow the new garden in the compost pile.

Compositing is best for the garden but yet selection of correct materials will determine the success of the compost pile.
