Coffee grounds for the lawn

Asked April 29, 2018, 1:25 PM EDT

I wrote to you about the above topic about a week ago, but have not heard back. Is it okay to apply coffee grounds routinely to my lawn? I obtain them from a coffee shop. Dolomite lime is applied annually. Thank you, Charles Couture

Thanks for your question, Charles. Not sure why other answer delayed. But here’s a very thoughtful article on the topic by a WSU professor that might help: https://s3.wp.wsu.edu/uploads/sites/403/2015/03/coffee-grounds.pdf I don’t know if you’re composting as well, but Dr. Chalker-Scott has science on that, too. Good luck!
