Compost Camouflage

"Store-bought composters tend to look ugly—like upside-down garbage cans—so I built a surround for ours using recycled cypress. My wife designed it as a trellis, so climbing plants, like the sweet autumn clematis she planted, will eventually cover it. The gable end flips down so that you can put scraps inside, and the larger front door opens to make it easy to scoop out the finished compost."
