A compost bin is one of the most important pieces of equipment a gardener should have. Compost bins allow gardeners to create nutrient-rich compost by decomposing recycled organic matter like leaves, vegetable scraps, and paper. Some might think compost bins are an eyesore in the yard, but many are made to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding landscape.
There is a wide selection of compost bins available. To choose the right one for you, consider the size of your garden and the space available to store the compost bin. If you have a small garden, a small compost bin will do. But if you have an expansive garden, it's a good idea to invest in a high-capacity compost bin.
