One of the best ways to reduce the amount of organic waste that you produce at home is through composting. Many people would love to give it a try. The problem is that they can’t for the lack of a balcony or space for a garden. After all, what’s the point of composting if you don’t have a garden to use it for? Why not just give the trash to the rubbish removal guys and be done with it?
But before you do, you should know that it is possible to start your own garden and composting bin despite the limited space, and here’s how.
First, you need to determine what kind of gardening system you’d like to have. There are several different ways of growing a bunch of vegetables or ornamental plants in urban abodes. You just need to determine which one is best for you. Otherwise, you’ll have folks offering domestic rubbish removal in Sydney picking up your dead plants.
For example, you can do a vertical garden with hanging baskets. These are relatively easy to do and maintain. If you don’t have the time to water the plants, you can get a self-watering system or settle for growing cacti and other less water demanding plants. Just visit your local orchidarium or gardening centre. You’ll see that there are certain technologies that are made specifically for urban plant growers.
Then comes composting. For most apartment dwellers, composting is a big problem. See, when people hear of composting, they immediately think of the smell. That awful stench coming from the rotting and decaying organic waste in their bins. This is actually one of the main reasons why they just forget about gardening and composting. They’d rather call the rubbish removal company and have them take the trash away.
However, when done correctly, composting need not be a stinky business. In fact, it can stench-free, easy, and quite satisfying. There are different ways to do composting in a small space.
For example, the Japanese use a method called the Bokashi method. Here, you put a small bin rink under your sink for all your organic waste. Then you put in the Bokashi chips. These breaks down all the waste into a dense liquid which can be diluted and used as fertilizers. And yes, this creates no stench whatsoever.
