Composter For Yard – Recommendations

Q: Any recommendations for buying a composter for the yard?

A: It all depends on your sense of aesthetics, your space, and your wallet. If you have a small space in which to put the composter, the upright plastic bins work fine. If you want compost quickly, the tumbler-type units rapidly mix and aerate your landscape debris but they are a bit unsightly. If you don’t want to spend too much and you have a place to hide it, buy a ten-foot length of four-foot wide fencing and roll it into a wire compost barrel. Composting is simple: “Pile it up and let it rot”, then feed your plants with the results. I have directions for how to make a simple wire composter at
