Some of your neighboring forum members have used a 55 gal drum cut to size and filled it up with their grass clippings and they posted positive results.

As the plant matter decomposes just add more on the top of the pile in the barrel.
The process will stay moist and ooze nutrients into the surrounding soil.

I made mine a couple years ago because the posts caught my interest.
I do think this works with small matts

As for the compost tea your thinking about, there are some good recipes on Youtube which use some household ingredients as a kicker.
I use teas....
Try Them out.....
