A garden compost bin, the container used for making compost can be quite easily made out of recycled materials at hand and can range from the simple to more complicated garden compost bin. The idea of creating a garden compost bin instead of a compost heap is to create the right environment for aerobic decomposition to occur. Compost is very useful for a garden and an International Compost Awareness Week is also celebrated in the second week of May to raise awareness about garden compost.
Making Garden Compost: Why?
- Making garden compost really improves the nature of the clayey or sandy soil and thus improving garden drainage.
- Making compost encourages a strong root system and helps in the retention of moisture
- After making garden compost it can be used as mulch around plants and between rows of vegetables where it will kill off weeds and prevent the drying up of the soil.
