I just completed another project building a rotating compost bin out of scrap deck wood. I am no carpenter and focus more on utility than appearance (obviously 🙂 ). I have had a compost bin located in my garden for several years and wanted another. Originally I created a couple of circular enclosures with some fencing but my dog was enjoying pulling out my discarded scraps and running off with them.
My solution was to build this enclosed rotating compost bin. I have read that the ability to rotate and mix the material would speed up the composting process. Time will tell.
The only cost to this was the broomstick running up the middle of the barrel and the deck screws I used to put everything together. Took me about 25 minutes to complete the build.
In case you are unfamiliar with composting or why I would do it. Composting provides an avenue to put rich, organic material back into the soil of my garden to feed nutrients to my plants.
Do you compost? If so, what method do you use?
Take care all –
