Left over turfy bits

Hi all image

Have just created a new bed in the lawn but have this left over:


Not entirely sure how though as it's not like the level in the bed has gone down image 

So ...... the question is ....... what do I do with the left overs? Can I use it to level out my lawn a bit or just bin it in the brown bin (once they are emptied) - I don't have a compost heap.

Thanks image

    Don't bin it Panda

    OMG,  I stacked my leftover turf last year face to face in a shady corner and this year I have gorgeous loam! image

    It really does turn into great soil

    Stack it in the corner for using next year.. Or use it to fill the bottom of a very large pot (with a good amount of container compost on top).

    Never thought about putting it in the bottom of a large pot - genius idea Blue Onion image

    Might go for the stacking idea though - do you put it on anything or just straight onto the ground?

    My stacks went on bare soil just out of full sun and left for a whole year

    I did bury half of them in the bed - still can't work out why these are left over image

  • You could put it in a black bin liner to rot off. making nice loam?

    And that wins it Woody image Would I put holes in the bag a la leaf mould?

  • Start dampish, and a few holes might not hurt the process.
