The perfect compost heap

For the compost produced in your own garden to be meaningful and appropriate and used without causing over-fertilization composting needs to be environmentally beneficial and a valuable option for recycling garden and kitchen waste. A plus point is also that transportation to a treatment facility while the operational energy consumption and CO2, etc. – eliminates emissions.
It should be noted here is the possibility of a bad smell but well-maintained compost does usually not smell unpleasant or at most a very short time. It should contain no animal residual material on the compost; it will rot usually only smell and also attract living animals (rats, foxes, mice).

Generally, fresh materials are crushed to be delivered as much as possible because this increases the surface area for the “attack” of the decomposing organisms. It is an advantage as it absorbs any odours and accelerates the rotting off, and intermediate storage of a (thin) layer of mother earth or mature compost.

Fresh compost is to be implemented in 3-6 months, and then a few months later if you can. After about a year, depending on the starting material, the compost is considered mature and ready for a screening and incorporated into the garden soil.

What composting process used depends on local conditions. It will basically be the following procedure. The compost pile is a derivative of the farm manure pile composting plant for organic waste and green waste in the household (home composting).
A traditional compost heap is suitable for any private garden. The compostable raw materials are piled up as it crushed. Here, the pile should be no higher than 1 to 1.5 meters.
Open chamber systems consist of two or more chambers or vessels, and are usually made of wood slats. These will be filled to the bottom of loose coarse materials such as branches are introduced, and only on the (chopped) garden and kitchen waste is layered.

This is to ensure that it can be a ventilated from the bottom of the compost material. The principle of multiple chambers is based on the assumption that the compost is scheduled to be redeployed after a few months of the first into the second chamber.

Thus it is mixed and can continue to mature in the second chamber, while the first chamber is again filled with new with fresh compost. After 6-12 months, the finished compost will be incorporated in the garden. The advantage of multiple chambers is that one part is held space for the mixing and the mature compost and this is not always the other hand, mixed with fresh material.

Thus, a good quality compost can be achieved. A variant of this method, on the same principle, except that instead of reacting after several months of each case, a new chamber is put into operation and so the mixing of the different degradation stages of the composting material is prevented. If you hold three composting chambers, you can fill each of the first with fresh material; the content of the second matures, while the third can be emptied gradually to the use of the fully matured compost.
