Coffee Grounds

Where do you put your coffee grounds each morning? Rather than tossing them in the trash, try this easy and sustainable solution to organic pest control.

Sprinkle your coffee grounds in your soil. This fertilizes the soil, attracts earthworms, and improves drainage. At the same time, the scent repels a number of garden pests.

Homemade Natural Spray

Sustainable gardening stays away from most chemical insecticides. Even organic sprays may contain harmful substances. Make your own sprays at home that keep away unwanted insects and other animals that may destroy your garden.
