One of the best things you can do in the garden is have a compost heap. You can’t really get very far in the garden without having a way to degrade all of the grass and weeds that you pull out of the garden. So in this section we going to take a look at all of the best composting ideas and methods.

Compost Bins

One of the best ways of dealing with your compost is a neat and tidy bin. You really can’t go far wrong as you’ll keep on adding compost to the top of the bin and eventually the lower green matter will break down leaving you with some incredible topsoil for your garden. I always recommend placing a towel over the compost bin so that it warms up and helps to break down the matter as quickly as possible. it’s also a great place to dispose of your dog poop too.

Compost heap

If you’re fortunate enough to have a really big garden then i would highly suggest keeping a huge pile. I would say it’s one of the best ways in which we can really make a difference to the wildlife in our gardens so definitely if it all possible always go with a quality compost heap.


Size of the compost bin matters

The bigger the compost heap then the more weight of green matter forcing down and compacting the mulches and what not below. This is great for worms and bugs who will really appreciate the environment and begin the process of rotting all the material for you. There simply isn’t a better quality of soil out there.
