As an all-natural gardener, it can be a struggle to find an abundant source of natural, supplemental fertilizer for your garden without spending a fortune.
Your answer may lie in your own yard. I am talking about grass clipping mulch. But not just any kind of grassy mulch, I am talking about grassy areas specifically managed for your garden mulching or chicken soil building program.
As I wrote in a previous post, I am a big supporter of converting lawn to food production. Incorporating a specially designed grassy mulch area into your conversion plan is a must-do. And this approach works very well with Back to Eden gardening.
Barbara Pleasant is a self-described grass clipping “devotee.” With many years of experience, she has developed a simple but specific method for using grass clipping mulch in her garden plan. As Barbara says,
“The most fundamental step I have taken is to actively cultivate three areas of my landscape for the specific purpose of gathering mulch. Rather than have them in solid turfgrass, I am growing a mixture of vigorous grasses and perennial clovers, especially Dutch white clover.”
Review Barbara’s short article, and then take a walk in your yard and see where you can convert non-productive lawn to your own specially designed grassy mulch areas.
