So, read this up, and you’ll get the answer to some of the questions you might have asked yourself.

The first thing you need to know about the composting bins is that they are not all the same. There are composting bins for various weather conditions, for various types of soils, there are those of different sizes, or different capacities, etc. Some of them can even be used only for a specific type of compost. That is something you must know, before deciding on what kind of a composting bin you wish to get.

There are tumblers, which are a bit different, and you can just roll them around your garden. They look like canisters, and the compost in them has to be dry, because the moist ruins the compost there.

Another type of a composting bin is an open bin, which allows the air to reach the chamber and allows your compost to dry much quicker. There are also the contracted ones – closed bins, and they are mostly used to help protect your compost from the outside conditions, such as the bad weather, which can moisten the compost and then ruin it. However, keep in mind that the closed ones are much more expensive than the open ones.

You can also find both the stationary bins and the movable ones. The stationary ones stay in one place and cannot be moved. They are usually made of wood or blocks, and are made up of three bins. The movable ones are mobile, and are great for remoistening the compost by turning it.

So, now you have an idea about what different types of composting bins can do. Figure out which one of them suits you the best and then buy it and start producing you own compost, and creating product that can truly be called yours.
