I started my own three bin system last Fall since I have terrible soil for my flower gardens(bagged top soil) and lawn (thin layer of top soil from builder 15 years ago).
I have a hundered or so oak trees and millions of leaves, so I think I will end up with a good amount of quality compost.
I plan to first add it to my flower beds as a supplement by loosening the soil with a pitchfork and then applying. Then, I'll add to my lawn as top dressing. Question is, how much to add to my lawn? Can I use it in place of fert?
