Can I make a compost pile outside on the ground or do I need to have it in a container?

    Compost piles work best if they are contained so the heat generated from the organic matter breaking down can stay centralized, working to break down the matter faster. It is also easier to stir the compost if it is in a container. It is possible to have an uncontained compost pile but it will take longer to turn into soil and you run the risk of it getting spread around by animals and not turning into quality soil. Compost containers allow for a more predictable result, keep the surrounding soil clean, and ensure that the material put into the pile turns into compost and not just an organic trash pile.
