    i have tried a couple of compost bins. To be honest i have gotten the best results just making a pile and leaving it, turning it every couple of weeks. Two drawbacks in my opinion of bins is air circulation and creating a barrier for insects to enter. i had a black compost bin which from what i read was a popular model. The contents never got hot. This baffled me for a long time then i decided to just make a pile in a sunny area. after a good rain it gets piping hot.

    Mixture of materials to put in bin, it needs air. it needs to be kept warm, it needs turning every week ideally. new materials as often as possible. Pee on it often. (I jest not) With a rotating bin it is possible to make good compost in 8 weeks.

    The best compost bin is on the open ground.

  • LaminatedGardenGuide says:

    It is vital that no matter what the compost bin or style you feel is right for you, it is properly aerated and has a hole large enough for you to get your compost out of. In addition, your bin should be something that is convenient for you something that you can get to and from easily, and that will be practical for all of your gardening needs.

    We started gardening last year and I am looking to start composting next.

    After installing a 4.2kW rooftop wind turbine system that’s worth looking at if anyone is interested. I posted that to look at. So, next we are going to start composting and using that in the garden. I like the bin.

    Im on my 2nd batch of compost. Just added a 3rd trash can.

  • trezf1 says:

    This is a good design, for a bin. I had a stationary bin but it was too difficult for me to turn the heavy materials. I agree that large capacity is necessary for quick or hot composting. I love my compostumbler. It’s bigger than the other bins and tumblers out there and it’s really easy to turn – even for my Dad who’s 69. He’s made 6 batches of compost in his compostumbler since he bought one 6 months ago!

  • GardenComposters says:

    Its a great bin for the serious com-poster that has the space we like the smaller plastic ones they are easier to maintain and more suited to smaller lots I have reviewed alot of com-posters but I must say I like what you are doing here

  • tradward says:

    i went and bought a 240 litre wheelie bin which i drilled large holes into. every time i mow the lawn the bin gets filled to the brim with fresh clippings. I add a handful of lime, a garbage bag full of shredded paper from the office and a bucket of wood ashes from the fire now it’s winter. I let it cook for a week then i turn it with a spiral compost aerator and add cow manure tea and half a bucket of compost from an older pile then turn it again and about twice a week thereafter. FYI :)

  • FanaGamingTical says:

    I would recommend investing in a compost tumbler if you are really interested in composting, specifically the Envirocycle Composter, due to the fact that it is small in size, easy to turn , and affordable!
