Making Compost In 30 Days Using Pallet Wood Bins...

If you have a backyard garden then you could probably use tons of compost to fill up your beds and supercharge your plants. Here is how to make great compost in 30-45 days with nothing but leaves and grass!

Making The Pallet Compost Bins: I got the pallets for free and screwed them together. Chicken wire attached with horse-shoe nails helps to keep the materials inside the bins while still allowing air flow.

Compost Recipe: 2 parts browns, 1 part greens and make sure that you mulch everything up really small to help it compost quickly. I use a lawnmower.

Building The Pile: Layer the brows and greens or better yet mix it all together. Water each layer as you build the pile so that the materials are moist like a sponge but not soggy. For best results make your pile 3 foot high and wide.

Composting Time: Turn the pile weekly until the temperature drops below 100°F – usually about 4 to 6 weeks.

Sifting The Compost: Build a sifting box out of 2×4 lumber and 1/2″ metal screen. Sift the compost before putting it in your garden!

Most pallets are treated. If you’re doing this, make sure yours aren’t or you’re contaminating your soil and food.


    Meme, Kyle has this planned. That’s when we’re not in about a foot plus inches of snow
