Easy DIY Compost Solution (#GardenFeature)

12K Views
After researching compost bins online I decided I just didn't want to spend $575+ on a contraption to hold my trash, so I looked around the yard at what I already had and came up with my own plan!
Time: 45 Minutes Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy

It's not the prettiest set up, but it works and it's along the side of the house in the yard so it's very out of the way.
Check out the blog post to see how I made this work: http://sandpaperandglue.com/2014/06/19/easy-diy-compost-solution/

Got a question about this project?

      @Kim Neumann - oh I guess it's not on that list, but don't worry I've been throwing them in there like crazy! I also crush them up and scatter them on top of the soil around my plants to keep crawly bugs off (they don't like the feel)
