Chop & Drop refers to dropping all green waste that’s been pruned and weeded from the landscape into the basins after chopping it into smaller bits. Because the basins hold moisture, the green waste breaks down more quickly and adds organic matter back to the landscape as it does so. It also functions as mulch to hold moisture in the basins for longer and deter weeds from growing.
