Hi chafu,


A compost bin can be made of many different materials. Mine is not a structure at all, it’s simply a pile to which I add my yard waste and select kitchen scraps.


The best way to speed up the composting process is to turn the compost. Turning the composting materials exposes more matter to the enzymes so that they can decompose that matter more quickly. Composting will occur if you don’t turn it, but it will take longer.


Compost bins are available in many forms and can be customized to fit your individual needs. We have manufactured composters available on as well as in the stores. Click here to shop.

Jen, in Boston expounded on your composting possibilities. Here is Jen’s post:


Chris in Atlanta created this video for The Home Depot’s Garden Club about composting:
