The summer sun is performing its last dance of the year and our gardens will soon become wastelands of winter, but before the snow starts to fall, it’s time to take autumn by the bronzed leaves and get out there, prune, trim and prepare the garden for next year.

So, what should you do with all the extra garden waste? GetComposting of course!

You really shouldn’t look at it as waste; your garden debris has the potential to give you a free supply of top-quality compost to get your garden blooming next year, with very little effort.

Simply throw it into a compost bin and over the winter months it will rot down to produce environmentally friendly compost that when added to the garden will suppress weeds and retain moisture throughout the dry months.

Benefits of home composting:

  • It’s easy to make and easy to use.
  • Produces a free continual source of the very best compost.
  • Improves soil structure.
  • Maintains moisture.
  • Helps the soil PH balance.
  • Suppresses plant disease.
  • Reduces carbon emissions.

To encourage residents to get composting, we have teamed up with Getcomposting to offer home compost bins at special offer prices from only £18.50. There is also a buy one get one half price offer to purchase a second bin from only £9.25, a massive saving!

If you want to compost your garden and food waste but haven’t got room for a compost bin, let us do it for you. Sign-up for a free brown bin and pop it in. We’ll collect it and take it to Vital Earth in Ashbourne where it’s composted!
