There is tons of information on composting for use in gardening, but very little about using it just for lawn care.
I live in the Pacific Northwest. I have a medium sized lawn with a mostly clay soil base and would like information on composting in order to support my grass and a few flowering bushes. The problem is that I live in town and have a Home Owners Association that will likely not allow a large compost bin, so I need to be discreet.
Most of my compostable material is "green" - lawn trimmings and food scraps. I can add paper and/or cardboard to provide the "browns".
What type of composting bin would you recommend? Also...can I sprinkle the finished product on my lawn and rake it in every few months?
Any advice is welcome. I have researched this quite a bit, but am still struggling to get started.
