Compost Bin Plans

Using just a few tools and a small investment you can create a DIY compost bin using plans from Ted's Woodworking.

I'm guessing you are the type that loves to garden and as a gardener; you know there is nothing better to feed your plants with than compost from your very own backyard. The question now is; how can you preserve and nurture your compost without making a mess out of your backyard. The answer is simple! Build a compost bin.

Although you can buy a budget friendly compost bin made from plastic or chicken wire, a DIY wooden compost bin made from rot-resistant cedar is sufficient to provide storage for your kitchen leftovers and yard clippings without letting out a stench or sore sight on your landscape. Ted's Woodworking DIY plans provides numerous techniques you can apply to build your own tailor made compost bin.

Composting Tips

  • Activate your compost: Apply activators like small weeds, extremely rotted chicken manure, comfrey leaves and grass clippings to your compost to speed up the process.
  • Get rid of insects: Small fruit flies are attracted to compost piles. Manage the insects by covering any exposed matter with a thin layer of grass clippings when adding new kitchen waste to the pile. Adding lime or calcium to the pile also discourages flies.
  • Unpleasant odors: You can reduce or eliminate bad odors by making sure not to put bones or meat scraps into the compost. Remember to cover new compost additions with dry grass clippings or mulch. Add calcium or lime also to neutralize odors.
  • Use only as Additives: Your compost should be used only as soil additives and not as main component in soil cultivation.
