    Does anyone use their duck poop in their garden?

    Every couple of months I get 2 or 3 buckets of duck poo out of the pond filters and from the pond bottom.

    Some gets added to the waste bedding for composting and some gets left for use as fertiliser.
    It's serious stuff!!

    Yep. don't really need to compost it. Can add it directly to plant/yard.

    Duck pond water is excellent for all sorts of things.

    My acid loving plants and blueberries looooooooove the duck bedding material.
