Making organic mulch is much easier than you may think. Composting is a great way to recycle your unwanted organic materials into something that can actually be used again, as something helpful. It costs very little and can be very rewarding to anyone with a gardening interest. Here's how you can create your own mulch:

  • Find out where to put it

You need to set aside a decent amount of space in your garden to create your compost heap, as it can become quite a mess if you are not careful. Make sure that you leave a space where your grass is as the mulch may crush the grass below it and kill it. A good thing to consider when you are creating your mulch pile is to start it in the fall. This is because the leaves will be falling from the trees, allowing you to collect them up and begin your mulch pile. You may wish to purchase a mulching lawn mower before you set out on your mission to create a mulch pile. The mulching lawn mower will chop up the leaves and other matter that you are looking to add to your pile.

  • Add some larger matter

You can add tree branches that have fallen if you have access to a chain saw, allowing you to build your mulch pile up quicker. Add the papaya leaves into the pile once you have passed over them with your mulching lawn mower to ensure that they decompose a bit quicker than without. You could borrow one from a store to avoid wasting money, so look online or visit your local gardening store to see if you can get your hands on one quickly.

If you leave your pile for a while it will decompose sufficiently for you to put it around your garden.
