Compost Your Lawn

If you want a greener, healthier lawn using no chemical fertilizers, use compost.

You can buy compost either by the bag or in bulk, depending upon the area that needs to be covered.

Buy enough to spread a 1/4 inch (.64 cm) deep layer across your lawn.

Water regularly. In a week or two your lawn will look fantastic!

Compost your lawn every spring and fall, summer too if you want.

Fungi Problems?

Mushrooms usually appear during the rainy months, but they can appear throughout the year.

If you have lots of mushrooms growing after regular watering, it could mean compacted soil is not allowing water to drain properly.

Allow the area to dry out, aerate it, and apply some gypsite to help make the soil more porous.
