Composting

is it a good practice to have your composting area so close to the garden?

in this case it's just at the end of a flowerbed, closest plant is about 6 inches away.

I noticed only a slight spill through the bottom of the compost bin for some of the water we've added to help the process.

Am I flying right?

Many camouflage compost piles and bins by surrounding with tall flowers or vines on trellis. Keep in mind that you need room on one side to turn the compost. Avoid placing compost piles over tree roots, as roots like to rise in search of moisture and nutrients.
