Understanding Garden Waste

Gardens are a source of beauty and relaxation, but they also generate waste. Garden waste, often referred to as green waste, includes organic materials such as leaves, grass clippings, branches, and other plant-based debris. Properly managing and disposing of this waste is crucial for the environment and the health of your garden.

What Constitutes Garden Waste?

  1. Leaves and Grass Clippings: These are the most common types of garden waste, especially during the fall season or after mowing your lawn.

  2. Branches and Twigs: Pruning and trimming trees and shrubs result in branches and twigs that need disposal.

  3. Weeds: Regular weeding is essential for a healthy garden, leading to a significant amount of waste.

  4. Dead Plants: Plants that have completed their life cycle or have been affected by diseases contribute to garden waste.

  5. Floral Debris: This includes spent flowers and any other plant-based debris.

Disposal Tips for Garden Waste:

  1. Composting: Turn your garden waste into nutrient-rich compost. This not only reduces the waste but also benefits your garden.

  2. Mulching: Use certain garden waste like leaves and grass clippings as mulch. This helps in retaining soil moisture and preventing weed growth.

  3. Green Bins: Use dedicated green bins, like those provided by Adelaide Wheelie Bins, for garden waste disposal.
