Combine Composting With Comfortable Seating

Composting is good for the environment and efficient for your backyard. However, if you don’t have a lot of room in your backyard you may not think there’s an efficient way to create a compost pile at your home. With this woodworking idea, you can build a bench that actually combines stylish outdoor seating with composting for maximum efficiency.

    Locate a spot for your bench. Ideally, this area should be somewhere in your garden or outdoor area. If the bench is built right you won’t have to worry too much about the bench being close to your home because of odors.

  • Pick a material for your bench. While you’ll want to use natural wood there are different types that might work. Cedar is an excellent example, but you should take the style of your home and outdoor area into account as well.
  • Determine your size. The bench can be scaled down or made slightly larger based on your needs. You don’t have to stick to the original plans, though they can make the building process easier.
