To get down to it, perfect compost involves math.

When you're building your own compost bin something to keep in mind is that it takes at least 1 cubic yard of material for compost to adequately heat up.

Roughly I figured out the total volume of this bin to be 2.37 cubic yards. You want to avoid any compost higher than 5 feet as it will compress. I made this bin from zip ties and hardware cloth, frugal affective, and best of all I had all the stuff so it costs me exactly $0.




For those less worried about aesthetic - just pile that bad boy on up til it looks right.
