Utah Lawn Care: Composting

The cost of Utah lawn care in the spring can be daunting for new homeowners. There is a way to keep a lawn healthy all year round while saving money and helping the environment. Composting is a great way to fertilize your lawn and garden and it costs less money then purchasing fertilizer.

Composting uses food and lawn clippings to create a mulch. This mulch will provide vital nutrients to your lawn and reduce the amount of waste you have every year. You can build your own container or purchase one from your local garden or supply store.

You will want to rotate the contents of your compost container so that the decomposed elements are on top for use and the newer items have a chance to decompose. Then you can use the compost for spring fertilization to grow a beautiful and healthy lawn.

If your lawn has multiple dry patches or doesn’t seem to be growing well you may need to determine if your lawn is missing nitrate. If your lawn is missing this vital ingredient it can be due to a lack of earthworms in your yard. You can increase the health of your lawn and encourage the appearance of earthworms by spreading ground up eggshells and coffee grounds on your lawn.

There is often a natural way to improve your yard without adding chemicals. If you are looking for eco-friendly Utah lawn care tips, you can find plenty of information on the Internet or at the local garden store.
