Organic Gardening: Seedfork picture (What is the carbon to nitrogen ratio of dried grass clipping)
Forum: Organic Gardening
Never give up! I finally found the carbon to nitrogen ratio for dried grass clippings, 50:1.
I realize that this is a very variable figure but it gives me a good ball park figure to go by, and answers the question should it be a green or a brown. With that carbon to nitrogen ratio, it should be used as a brown, even with the three percent nitrogen.
Also found this nifty compost calculator:
Unfortunately two of my most used ingredients: dried grass clippings and dried shredded leaves are not included, but I still find it interesting and a good general guide.
This site has lots of info about composting:
