Always keep the compost moist

Having your own compost heap in the garden is invaluable. If you have the opportunity, you have to consider a few points when composting correctly.

Use compost for soil maintenance
If you want to maintain your soil optimally, you should supply it with compost. The compost not only improves the quality of the soil. It also helps to reduce the waste problem in both the garden and the house. If you have enough space in your garden, then you should definitely create a compost heap, because garden waste and kitchen waste on the compost heap are converted into a valuable fertilizer.

Compost correctly - 5 tips

  1. The compost must be designed in such a way that it does not disturb your neighbors in terms of odor. So don't sit right next to the neighbor's terrace.
  2. Compost should always be in the shade or partial shade and protected from the wind.
  3. Not everything can be composted. These include weeds, diseased plants, flower fertilizers, paper, cat litter, tobacco, cigarettes and cotton strings. On the other hand, you can compost weeds without seeds, leaves, moss, potato peels, tea bags, coffee grounds, fruit and vegetable leftovers, grass clippings and also cut flowers without hesitation. Be careful with citrus peel, wood ash, sawdust and sand, only add them in small quantities. Larger parts such as branches should be chopped.
  4. Those who compost always need two plants. When a compost is full, it must rest.
  5. Always keep the compost moist. To test whether it is moist enough, pick up a handful and squeeze it. If a ball can be formed and the material no longer falls apart, it has the right moisture.
