We also use it for closing gates too !
|Coconut gate closing system|
On arriving here coconut fiber was used as a mulching material on the garden beds and around banana trees and Bamboo. Thinking this was a good idea but seeing that the bamboo and bananas were no showing signs of health I inspected the soil and to my amazement there were no signs of soil life, humus and little moisture retention. The coconut fiber was as good as new when digging deeper and interwoven into a mat like structure.
I then asked the Mani,
As we are trying to reduce the soil pH of our food producing gardens from 8-10 to 6.5 we now add around 20% to our compost mix. We are achieving great results in that the decomposition occurs within our 21 day composting process and in the end the compost tests at 6-7 pH. We need to trial a compost heap with the same amount of fiber… Will it compost quicker than 12 months
