I have about 1700 sq. ft. of lawn I cut weekly, and I need to create a composter, for grass only. I want to keep it small as possible. I have done a little reading in the past about making the composting process an efficient one, about adding the right kind of things, and turning it all- to make it dirt as quickly as possible. I used to have a small round black plastic igloo-shaped one. It walked away one day. It had only been one summer season here in Toronto, but I could tell it was going to take little time for grass to become usable dirt, something else I could use around here. But it will need to be located within 10 feet of a pool. And there was definitely an odour coming from it. So its time to get or make a new one, as small as possible, and if it is possible to be specific about the fact that it be a low-odour model, then that is what I need. I could use wood, sheet metal, or plastic, or a combination.
I guess I can start in this ng with the question:
Is it possible to make a smallish grass-only (or mainly grass) composter. A low-odout type. I am just wondering if the black plastic is a better way to go for the added heat build-up from the sun, whereas wood not be as hot, a key ingredient. Or maybe slats of wood with a sheet metal, or plastic boxing inside. I think circulation is important too iirc. And any clues what I need to do to make it a low-odour version, for at least as long as anyone will be swimming (close it up temporarily).
Any plans tidbits thoughts thanks
