A Simple Compost Bin

Here is a rather simple compost bin design created and explained by Lee Reich in an article from Fine Gardening. Reich is the author of a number of gardening books that I have read and enjoyed. As I am about to build a compost bin, I have been searching for a good design. I may use this one with some modifications... I'll keep you posted.

For more information about composting, you can read my previous article.


  1. I'm quite happy with how my pallet-and-zip-tie compost bin is performing. It only cost about $5 per bin and 20 - 30 minutes to assemble each. (I settled on 5 compartments total.)

  2. I love it! Simple and cheap and a great way to re-purpose something others see as "waste". Fantastic!
