Take a Walk on the Wild Side

| 6/27/2019 1:44:00 PM


Summer is a good time to pause and ponder the usefulness of your lawn.

If no compelling reason other than tidiness comes to mind, let me suggest you plant it up or let it go. Either way you're adding to your home-grown mulch stash, improving the overall health of yours and your neighbor's garden, and have one less job on Saturday. 

Indulge me here and my homegrown mulch addiction — because there is no goodness like it. Today I’m looking at homegrown hay mulch and the multitude of benefits that come your way when you let your lawn go.  

Nuts and Bolts

Everywhere you weed-eat, mow or (god forbid) spray is fair game. Leave these areas alone until you next need mulch, at which point lop it down in your chosen way, leaving a good 10cm stub behind for best health.

There are a surprising amount of opportunities for homemade hay once your mind shifts its focus from tidy gardening to the wild-side. Let little bits around the edges, here, there and everywhere go wild and you'll be amazed at how much mulch you reap.
