When you use a cedar compost bin, locate it in as warm a position as you can in order that it has as much heat as is possible. When the compost bin is in a really shady location, decomposition is going to still take place  but the process is going to be slower, particularly in the winter months or autumn as soon as the colder weather arrives.
A well balanced low maintenance compost heap has a combination of ingredients. There ought to be a variety of brown and green vegetable matter, together with some moisture so the micro-organisms keep active. Wood chippings along with dried leaves together with shredded newspaper and cardboard would be excellent as the brown components for your compost bin. Whilst waste from the  kitchen along with grass clippings will be perfect as the green ingredients.

When using one of our cedar compost bins, begin with a heap of chunky materials such as small twigs and woody stems so you have good air circulation. After that every time you add green stuff to your


compost also add some brown too, thus creating air pockets as well as also creating decent moisture balance. If you'd prefer, you are able to give your compost heap a start with an activator, of which there are several on the market.
Maintaining your compost bin is a very simple procedure although just a little care will help. By adding material frequently you are providing the bacteria with a continuation of fresh food and more insulation to help keep the composting process warm. Also turn the heap regularly, every couple of weeks or so, to keep the ingredients blended and therefore working nicely. It would also be a good idea to take a handful of the mixture to see if it is slightly damp. To little moisture can slow the composting process whilst to much can make it slimy. After a couple of months your compost will be a dark crumbly soil with the sweet aroma of fresh soil.
