I moved my whole composting site to another place of my garden. Before the place was on a mild slope, now it's much more level. The shading is similar, maybe a bit more shady now. The inputs didn't change radically. I mostly compost grass clippings with added torn cardboard to improve the C/N ratio. It seems the degradation process is still OK.
But I've noticed much more liquid is produced from the compost. Is it only weather caused (this summer was rather rainy in Europe) or is there some problem with the process of composting? There surely must be some liquid coming from the compost but I hadn't noticed the amount of it before.
I've thought about putting some gravel below the composting bin and digging some drain canal filled with gravel to let the waste water to drain more easily. Would it be a good and lasting solution?
