Covering a composting bin or pile is crucial in maintaining its optimal conditions for decomposition. By keeping it covered, moisture levels are better regulated, preventing excessive evaporation that could dry out the organic matter within. Retaining moisture is key for the microbial activity responsible for breaking down materials. Moreover, covering the compost helps to trap heat generated during the decomposition process. This trapped heat accelerates the breakdown of organic matter, expediting the transformation into nutrient-rich compost. By managing moisture and heat levels through proper covering, we create an environment conducive to efficient decomposition, resulting in high-quality compost that enriches the soil and sustains healthier plant growth.
