The best type of compost is made from the leftover parts of plants, known as kitchen scraps and garden waste. When composting is done properly, it will be rich in nutrients for your garden. Compost is usually either brown or green but can also be a mixture of the two. In this article, we are going to go through the differences between these types of compost.
Brown compost is created from plant material that has been shredded or turned into smaller pieces. The material can be animal or vegetable matter such as leaves, grass, twigs, fruit, wood, and even manure.
To make compost, you need to collect kitchen and yard wastes and mix them with water and anaerobic material such as sawdust or newspaper. These materials are then left out in the sun to break down for three to six months.
