    I have read quite a few threads that suggest using coffee grounds as a good cheap fertilizer. It seems that many places will provide used coffee grounds for free.

    One of the threads mentioned that you need to dry them out before using them. I would assume that is so it can be dumped in a lawn spreader (otherwise the grounds wouldn't spread).

    How do you dry out the used coffee grounds?

    Spread them wet if you have the capacity. I used to be an industrial equipment rep and if you have the bucks I can set you up with a dryer, conveying, storage solution. It will be around 100K and will work extremely well. :waving:

    Or if you are only doing it for yourself, you could do what others are doing and spread them out on cardboard on your sunny driveway.
