as a long term gardner ive come to like adding straw to my compost , and also spreading it whole over entire garden . as it works its way into soil it loosens it / un does compaction making it easier for root growth . plus adds minerals . so my question is what if he spreads straw over lawn then mulches it , and leaves it lay . mulch it again the next week , and so on til straws chewed up into tiny bits . whats the long term results ?
and what if you spread the straw , then mulch it . then aerate it . let it lay and continue to mulch it every week , while at some point seeding ?
