Many like to compost their leaves in a way that keeps it pure of whatever may flow into it from streams, as would be the case across from us, or be added unknown to them.
When you are making your own compost, there are things that you should never add to your compost, listed as follows:
- Check any vegetation that you add to make sure none of it is carrying disease.
- There are things from the kitchen you can add like clean egg shells and coffee grounds, or you may add bonemeal, but do not add meat that will rot.
- Unless you know your grass has not been treated with herbicides, don't add your grass clippings, or any other plant that has been killed with herbicides.
- Do not add animal waste from dogs or cats
I have written more about making perfect leaf compost, stop by and visit for a great way to use some of those leaves that need cleaning up on your property. A little common sense goes a long way when leaf composting.
