Recycling In The Garden

By recycling garden products and planting trees, you can help improve the environment in your back garden.

Composting
Composting is a process where waste degrades into compost, which can then be used in your garden to help it grow. It is an excellent way to recycle garden and kitchen waste such as plant trimmings and leftover food.

Grass cycling
Grass cycling is an excellent way of recycling grass cuttings after mowing the lawn. Simply leave the cuttings on the ground instead of throwing them away, they will turn into nutrients and act as a fertiliser in the soil.

Planting trees
Planting trees in your garden helps to improve the environment by reducing global warming and providing a home for many animals.
