Composting can be done many ways, and methods for composting can range from using store-bought containers to large open-air mounds. While I have done larger open air mounds, these are often for more experienced composters and can require light machinery. For smaller piles I’ve found it’s normally easier, better, and cheaper to use a homemade setup rather than going for a store-bought solution.
A few of the most common homemade types of composting containers can be seen below:
These are cheap and easy to build, easy to maintain, and can last for years. These encompass the open air, smaller style of compost piles.
