Every gardener will tell you that compost is a garden’s most valuable asset. The product of decomposing organic matter, such as dead plants and kitchen scraps, compost is a nutrient-rich soil conditioner that helps crops grow vigorous, healthy, and problem-free.
Making compost is just as important for indoor gardeners, whether you grow in soil or in a hydroponic system.
Do you need a good amount of compost for your garden? Then build your own compost bin! And you can do this the quick and easy way when you use pallets. 🙂
Pallets make great compost bins. Simply putting them together as they are, they provide just the right structure to the pile and allow good ventilation!
Now any safe pallet will do but if you don’t want to ruin the beauty of your backyard, make sure to find good looking pallets of the same size. You can also paint the outside if you like for a visually appealing pallet compost bin.
You can build your compost bin with nails or screws and hinges, but this featured pallet compost bin was only assembled using zip ties! It’s a very inexpensive and simple project that will only take about an hour to finish.
