I am looking for a compost bin, but the house we have just moved to has a very open plan garden iyswim and so I would ideally like something that looks "nice" as it will be very visible from the house.

Any suggestions or ideas?

WOuld it be possible to grow some climbers over it to soften it?

screen it off, you can stick a rattan type screen up or grow some climbers up a screen, it's a garden, mines just made of bricks and is open it looks fine, I have potatoes growing out of it.

go for something wooden and slatted, rather than one of the Dalek type ones - there are lots of them around (sadly not generally sponsored by the council though...)

Those green joannas go underground don't they? There's a thread about them somewhere

I really don't like those dalek ones, also our council doesn't provide any subsidies for compost bins at all. The joanna seems like it could have potential though!

Those beehives are really cute peonies, thanks for that link!
