If you’re composting and you find that your compost is rough and bulky, don’t worry. I’m a firm believer in the adage that says for every problem, there is a solution. If you want your compost to look and feel like those that you bought from the garden store, it’s possible. In this case, you’ll need a compost sieve.
While there are ready-made compost sieves being sold, you can also make your own. That way, you can customize it according to your specifications. You can choose the shape and size so that it fits your needs. You can also choose your material so that the finished product is durable and sturdy.
The best thing about this project is that it’s inexpensive. If you have scrap wood and tools, all you have to do is buy the hardware cloth. This is truly worth your effort.
- ½ inch hardware cloth
- Scrap 2×4 wood
- Wire cutter
- Circular saw
- Pneumatic nailer/drill and screws
- Pneumatic stapler/hand stapler
