Coffee grounds also have the ability to reduce gas emissions and can kill weeds naturally, making your garden healthier in the long run. Note: This isn’t a quick fix—the grounds act slowly. Coffee grounds are kind of like a natural fertilizer and have a similar ratio of carbon to nitrogen (20:1) as manure.
