An access point was constructed at the bottom front of the composters so that finished compost could be removed easily.
These composters were placed on solid level ground. Solid ground can be asphalt, cement, or patio stones. This prevents animals from burrowing underneath the composter and getting into it. It also provides a clean surface to work on when removing finished compost. Worms and other organisms do not need to be purchased and added to the composter. Worms and other organisms that break down organic matter will find their way into the composter naturally even if it is situated on asphalt, cement or patio stones.
