    Composting and lawn care

    anyone produce large amount of lawn trimmings and have them up as a compost?

    The only thing I can is lawn trimmings, no other compost I'm not sure if the carbon/nitrogen mix will fix

    i looked at sites like http://decompose.co and howtocompost but they dont say anything on it

    You can add non glossy shredded paper to the grass clippings to increase the carbon/nitrogen mix. Grass clippings will break down over time it just takes longer and sometimes smells real bad if it is wet before it starts to rot. Non meat kitchen scraps can be added also.
    Good luck with it

    Hi I have a good idea about fertilizer for the lawn.

    I used to buy fertilizer from the mall, and then I found a chicken farm near my house.
    They were also worried about chicken manure treatment. I bought a separator and now I get free fertilizer.
    Now not only do I no longer need to buy lawn fertilizer, but I also provide fertilizer for businesses.

    the best way to get the compost to decompose faster is turn it with a tractor. then it will break down faster.
    I own a small engine repair shop. I have been in business since 2010. We now do the repairs for 4 Home Depot stores and 1 Tractor supply. we are alwase looking for a chance to get more equipment
    through the door. We also sell Jonsered, Ariens and shindaiwa equipment. check us out @ http://www.facebook.com/#!/smallengineman
