If you have a green thumb, you're likely aware of the endless benefits of compost. Mulching with compost stabilizes pH levels in the soil, slowly releases nutrients over time, makes soil easier to work with, and make soil less likely to erode. If you don't have much space or are wanting to start composting on a small scale, this DIY compost bin is about as simple as you can get.

Tip: If you drill larger holes in the storage bin, use wire mesh to cover the holes on the inside of the bin. This will keep pests and rodents from infiltrating the bin.
