A compost bin is a great way to produce the rich fertilizer that your growing plants crave One very important foundational aspect of a garden is nutrient-rich soil. You can make your own vibrant soil additive by a method called composting. When you compost, you put organic materials together in a combination that causes them to break down and produce wonderful, rich humus. This hummus (organic matter) improves soil structure and texture, encourages water retention and drainage and builds soil fertility by allowing plant roots to take in the nutrients in the soil by supporting living organisms.
There are many ways to do this, but the best way, particularly if you live in an urban setting, is to purchase some sort of enclosed compost bin. An enclosed bin aids the process by making turning easier and thus producing finished compost quicker. It also alleviates the negative aspects of an open bin, which can be unsightly and smelly, and can attract pets, rodents and other animals.
