What are Garden Cuttings?

Garden cuttings include leaves, grass clippings, branches, hay, flowers, sawdust, woodchips and bark.

  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions from landfill
  • reduce leachate production in landfills

The use of compost in gardening, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture can:

  • reduce the amount of watering required
  • reduce the amount of synthetic fertilisers needed
  • improve the structure, fertility and health of soils
  • help to repair soils suffering from poor management
