FAQ

What should I put at the bottom of my compost bin?

It’s advisable to put layers of materials such as sticks, vegetable peels, corn cobs, coffee grounds, fruit peels, and other food kitchen scraps. All these coarse materials contribute to an efficient and easy composting process. These layers aid in improving aeration especially at the bottom of the compost bin.

In some cases, gardeners choose to have a solid bottom of a compost bin where they can add some scoops of compost. When composting materials are placed directly on the soil, microorganisms, insects, and worms contribute to a better composting process.

Our aerating compost box provides a latch-on lid and easy-to-open bottom hatch for an easier release of compost. Gardeners will have more accessible and efficient composting for every type of garden.

Should compost bins be in the sun or shade?

Generally, you can put your compost bin in either under the sun or in the shade. To better understand the difference between the two, let’s know first how each one works.

A full sun is beneficial for the compost bin. It increases the temperature and aids fungi and bacteria to work more efficiently. A compost pile under a sunny area will require fewer materials like dried leaves, sawdust, paper, and cardboard to aid the compost dries faster. You will just need to water the compost once in a while to keep its moisture content.

On the other hand, a compost bin placed under a shady place will be cooler due to the slower decomposition process. The compost pile may also be a bit damper, so you’ll need to put extra carbon material to prevent the compost from being wet and soggy.

Ideally, the compost bin should be in a sunny area on bare soil with better drainage and aeration.

Do compost bins smell?

Basically, a properly maintained compost bin should not give off too much smell. It should have a good supply of air and moisture to promote a good decomposition result. If you notice a strong odor of rotting eggs and ammonia, then something wrong is going on. One reason can be the lack of good aeration.

In addition, the stinky smell of your compost bin is a sign of a wet compost heap and has gone anaerobic. Several factors can contribute to this including an imbalance in nitrogen and carbon, lack of aeration, and too much water. Keep in mind that with poor aeration, the compost will become stagnant.

Is it OK to have maggots in compost?

The answer is YES. Don’t be afraid because they won’t affect your plants during the next season. In fact, they help in breaking down the compost materials to make soil fertile. However, you might still be thinking that these maggots will consume many nutrients of the compost. Both are true and crucial for the success of your garden.

So, if you see maggots in your compost, don’t panic. They are often not harmful and may even be beneficial. In case you still want to get rid of the maggots, make sure to add more brown materials to create a balance between dry and wet materials.

Does compost turn into soil?

This question sometimes confuses gardeners. Compost is considered a soil amendment. It is actually made of rotten organic materials, like vegetable peels, coffee grounds, and fruit peels that are mixed with garden topsoil. Soil, on the other hand, contains substances such as rock particles and minerals.

After decomposition, compost becomes a part of the soil, which is known as “humus.” Decomposition is usually completed within 2 weeks to 2 years based on the size of the bin, materials used, and other factors. You can tell that the compost is ready to be used when its color turns dark brown and becomes soil-like particles.
