ash is a neuteralizing agent to acid similar to lime. Yess it can be finely spread on your garden and lawn
Adding the picture sure got us to reply
If your not sure try exprimenting on your neighbors lawn first.... :lol:
Sure, why not..... A ol' timer I knew once screened his winters' ash over a barrel every Spring for a finer fertilizer. Me , I just spread it around my driveway to keep the ice down
We use to dump the ashes on our garden when I was growing up and it worked great. But sometimes my mother would have to get my dad out of bed to put the fire out in the back yard because the fall leaves caught on fire.
I dumped ash on my lawn last winter and there is still a bare spot. Grass will not grow there no matter what I do. I reseeded it in the spring, summer, and this fall. No luck.
under my annual burn pile is some of the most fertile grass on my lawn...when the fire is not there ;-) my vote is yes
indeed you're right Dylan...a valid point of clarification, but that was the thrust of my point...perhaps it's too much drunk stove-tending and hearth.com reading ;-)
