Types of Composting

  • Aerobic composting:compost-ina-bin

This is composting with air. Big nitrogen leftovers (like grass pieces and other green content) will raise bacteria that will make high temperatures (up to 170 degrees). Organic waste will break down easily and is not likely to stench. The end products of an aerobic method are mainly carbon dioxide and water.

This model of composting is high maintenance, given that it will need to be flipped around every few days to let air in the process and the temperatures higher. It is also possible to involve precise moisture monitoring. This choice of compost is excellent for bigger amounts of compost.

  • Anaerobic composting:

This is composting without air. It is the biological breakdown of organic substances by living anaerobic organisms (such as bacteria). As the word anaerobic suggests, these organisms prosper in surroundings in the full lack of oxygen.

Anaerobic composting is low maintenance because you basically toss it in a pile and wait a few years.

  • Vermicomposting:

This is most effective method for composting food waste. Worms can transform your everyday kitchen waste into rich compost that plants certainly love, and you don’t even need a garden spot to get it running. You can do compost inside. Indoor composting is the best way to do continue composting over winter in colder climates.

The maintenance with this method is quite moderate. Usually, worm bins need very little attention.

It is so easy. Start by using one of the three techniques mentioned above and see what benefits you get.
