    Interesting survey, but our compost system is just a pile...which we rake and weed every now and then. I do love the idea of a "pretty" system but as we live out where no one cares about how it looks...I find the pile much easier to access than a pretty wooden bin, that would rot. The idea of the sifter and wheeled cart is cool. My husband made me a portable box for sifting, that i put over the wheelbarrow, but generally I don't bother to sift.

    I did take the survey. We do the sameas you nswef. It's a pile behind our hot tub. And we're in city limits. No need for fancy schmancy containers.

    Thank you for taking my survey and for all the comments! First off, I apologize for sketching people out by posting a link as a new member. I know I haven't participated in this forum before, but I wanted to get quality feedback from people who have knowledge and opinions about backyard gardening and composting.

    Your feedback is all very helpful. I know that this system is not for everyone (even my own compost bin is made from old pallets), but since I am in school for product design, I am trying to create a solution for people who want to have a better impact on the environment but don't want to create their own bins or have freestanding piles of decomposing food in their backyard.

    Thank you again for the help!
