Options for composting in your garden

Composting is a great way to enrich your soil, garden and plants while simultaneously helping the environment by reducing waste. When you compost, you use a special receptacle to discard certain types of home food scraps, such as fruit and vegetable peelings and remnants. Dead leaves as well as lawn and yard clippings also make great additions to your compost bin.

Over time, the materials in your compost bin naturally degrade, creating a healthy fertilizer and mulching material that can be used anywhere in your yard or garden. Because most of the materials you add to your bin or drum are plant-based, composting produces no smell. Gardening composting is not only simple and enjoyable; it also helps you save money on expensive fertilizers, mulch and soil conditioners.

Bin and Drum Composting

There are many different types of receptacles in which you can store and produce your compost. The simplest storage units are composting bins. These bins feature special chambers to aerate and store compost at various stages of decomposition.

Another possibility for people who are simply interested in producing compost for their lawns is a "green" or composting mower. They look and handle like regular lawn mowers , but instead of removing grass clippings, they grind them up and redistribute them back to the lawn itself. The result is rich...
