Coffee grounds are an excellent addition to your compost pile since they are rich in nitrogen, which causes the bacterial reactions in the compost that create heat, according to Science Daily. The heat keeps the material actively composting over a prolonged period, and also kills many of the pests and germs that might be present.
Additionally, the nearly infinitesimal acidity may benefit alkaline soils, as well as acid loving plants like camellias and azaleas. All in all, coffee grounds are good for vegetables and other plants, as they encourage the growth of microorganisms in the soil and improve tilth.
Aim for no more than 25% of your compost being coffee grounds. Coffee grounds have the same C/N as some manures. Both manure and coffee grounds will heat up your compost pile, however, with coffee grounds it seems the heat has staying power.
Coffee grounds encourage microbes to grow in the soil, helping use the nitrogen. The microbes break down the coffee grounds, allowing nitrogen to add even more nutrients to your growing grass plants. When adding the grounds to the soil, make sure you don't leave a layer on top of the grass.
