#5 Coffee grounds create a protection ring

How to repel slugs and snails, worms, and other common garden pests for your vulnerable plants (like strawberries)? Simply sprinkle coffee grounds around your plants. These pests do not like the smell, acidity, or texture of coffee grounds.

#6 Coffee grounds to stain your garden benches

Your garden would crave a varnished or painted garden bench that leaches toxic chemicals into your soil every time it rains or you water your garden. Why not make it out of coffee grounds?
