I love to start and finish my day with a cup of  good coffee.

Simply love the smell,the taste and the way it wakes me up and prepares me for the day .

But after I drink my favorite cup of coffee I hate the moment of cleaning my cup .Recently on net I came across  to one great article and since I love gardening and reusing I was more than happy to read ,try and then share it with you coffee lovers.

Here are the best uses of coffee ground:

1. Compost

  • add it directly to your compost because according to Oregon State University  it is  high-nitrogen materials but it need to be balanced with high-carbon materials( sawdust, sticks, twigs and dried leaves).

2. Mulch

  • add  coffee grounds (21 percent nitrogen) will keep wood mulch from tying up too much nitrogen from the soil.

3. Deter pests

  •  use  coffee grounds as a deterrent because  slugs don’t like  crossing over a barrier of coffee grounds. All you need to do is to sprinkle a circle of grounds around your targeted plant, reapplying as needed.

4. Improve soil structure

  • if you have an area of soil in desperate need of drainage and amendment, coffee grounds can be a great addition,let the earthworms pull coffee grounds deep into the soil.

5.. Compost tea

  • use a ratio of ½ cup grounds to 1¼ gallons of water
  • strain the liquid and use it as a natural fertilizer .

6. Suppress fungal rots and wilts

  • Washington State University points that  coffee grounds help to suppress certain fungal rots and wilts so try scattering a thin layer of coffee grounds around plants .

7. Green up your lawn

  •  simply mix coffee grounds with horticultural sand and applied the mixture to the  lawn.
