As like any other work like painting, sculpting, cooking, drafting, etc, gardening is also an art to say. To see from the outside may look simpler and easier. But it is not really an easy task.
It is really a good exercise for anyone who does it. It not only requires physical activity but it also requires good planning, and thinking for it to turn out productive, effective, and beautiful which will also not eat your pocket but in turn, cool your mind.
We all are well known that at present there are so many factors which spoil the atmosphere. And one of which is the waste from our houses. Even though the government has so many waste recycling projects, simple recycling measures can also be taken in the home by us.
It does require a little more effort for this. But getting these things done in-home gives many advantages as we would be able to prepare our own composite, and mulch from our farms, save money spending on these composites and mulch which we need to buy from the markets.
Organic Gardening with water/hydroponics can be one of the best ways to lower the waste produced in the garden. Hydroponics is actually a revolution that is getting more popular worldwide due to its various benefits offered.

However for those who still want to know how to recycle garden waste, below are a few tips for you.
Tips for recycling waste: Every gardener and homeowner should know about
The fallen leaves for example lay in our garden and we do clean them. But instead of throwing it away it can be made into mulch and used on our farms.
There is so much gardening equipment that helps us to create this mulch. So when the fallen leaves are collected they can be still more ground into a porous paste or finer form, then mixed with water and spread into our farms to about 50-60 mm or 2 to 5 inches minimum.
Mulch can also be made out of shredded leaves, sticks, woods, grass, bark, and any other plant products. If the mulch is made more porous then it is more beneficial. It helps to retain the water content in the land which avoids frequent watering of the garden.
Also, care has to be taken that the mulch should not be mixed with the soil or should be immersed in the land. It should be just laid as a covering onto the land to protect it. If it is mixed with the land then it will hinder the growth of the plants. If the weeds are removed before mulching this would be more beneficial. They removed weeds can also be used in mulch preparation.
Another method of recycling garden waste is to create compost or manure from the waste products. Compost and manures are essential for the good growth of any plant. It would be much better if that compost is produced from our garden waste. It is also an easy method to create compost.
When the garden waste is collected together it may be ground using a grinding machine or just cut down into small pieces and can be kept in the corner of the garden.

The better option is layering the waste one by one such as wood pieces first, small sticks next, grasses, and then the fallen leaves. With each layer, also mix the soil and water. And leave this for some time for around 2 to 3 months. After this duration, good-quality manure is ready for your plants.
Thus by effectively recycling garden wastes, we can be a part of an eco-friendly atmosphere. Also, this can save a good deal of money.
