I live on a rental property at the moment but I am in the process of moving, where I am moving to has no couch grass and I would like to keep it that way. Not knowing the danger of couch grass I started a vegetable beds at my rental property a few years ago, seeing as I put a lot of work into making the soil I still wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t to use the stuff at the place I am moving to.
I know I could kill all the couch rhizomes in a hot compost pile but am not certain if I would have all of the ingredients to make a hot compost pile or the experience needed to guarantee a successful hot compost pile.
The two options I am thinking of is putting some of the couch riddled soil in with my bathtub worm farms and or putting some of the it in my chook pen and let them scratch up all the soil and get rid off all the couch rhizomes.
Does this sound like it will work in getting out all of the couch grass rhizomes from my soil or should I not risk it and just leave the soil at my rental place?
Thanks in advance,
