How to make composting easier with a Garden Tech garden composter

Posted by Garden Tech, on February 21, 2023.

Composting is an excellent way to reduce waste and create nutrient-rich soil for your garden.

However, the process can be overwhelming for beginners. A garden composter can make composting easier and more efficient. Here are some tips for using a garden composter.

  1. Choose the right location for your garden composter. You’ll want to choose a level, well-drained area that’s easily accessible.
  2. Add a mix of brown and green materials to your garden composter. Brown materials, such as leaves and twigs, provide carbon, while green materials, such as fruit and vegetable scraps, provide nitrogen.
  3. Use a garden fork or compost turner to mix your compost regularly. This helps to aerate the compost and speed up the decomposition process.
  4. Keep your compost moist but not waterlogged. Aim for a moisture level of around 50%.
  5. Avoid adding meat, dairy, and cooked food to your garden composter, as these can attract pests and slow down the composting process.
  6. Use a compost bin with a lid to prevent pests from getting into your compost and to control the temperature and moisture levels.
  7. Consider using a compost activator or accelerator to speed up the decomposition process.
  8. Once your compost is ready, use it to fertilize your garden soil, improve plant growth, and reduce the need for chemical fertilizers.
