Layered composting or aerobic composting is the most efficient, effective and quickest way to turn your garden weeds and grass clippings into rich, nutritious soil for your garden beds. Layered lasagna compost offers a delectable feast for the bugs and bacteria that aerate and nourish a compost pile, acting as industrious decomposition farmers.
So close the loop on your garden feeding methods by learning how to build layered compost and create all the fertilizer and planting soil that you will need for a season.
Composting offers a tangible example of a sustainable life-cycle process for any gardener, as the weeds, dead plants and grass clippings from a yard create food for new crops and floral beauties. The presented lasagna layering method allows a compost pile to heat up and break down fibrous matter in a few months. Covering and turning your compost will also speed up the process, meaning that you can attain usable, nutrient-rich soil in a matter of three months. Over the winter most environments don’t produce enough material for active composting, but these environments also do not allow for over-winter gardening. However, composting can be actively done from the spring to the fall – basically as long as you can weed and mow the lawn.
