The Compost Bin - Turning Trash into Treasure

clock-circular-outline Created with Sketch. Dec 10, 2023

Composting is a fantastic way to divert food scraps from landfills, create nutrient-rich fertilizer for your garden, and shrink your environmental footprint. But before you dive headfirst into the wonderful world of decomposing banana peels and eggshells, you need to find the right compost bin for your composting journey.

There are many different styles and types of compost bins available on the market, and choosing the correct compost bin can appear to be a daunting task, but fear not, as we have a guide to help you. Together we'll go through the key factors to consider, helping you select the bin that best suits your needs and space.

The first thing to consider is the material. Composting is a sustainable and environmentally friendly practice, and selecting a plastic compost bin does not exactly fit in with the goal of composting. So we recommend that you choose a sustainably made garden compost bin, such as a wooden compost bin, that has not been treated with harmful chemicals. Our range of pressure treated, wooden compost bins can help you out here. A wooden composter is an eco friendly way to get into composting, and it ensures that you're actually improving the environment.

The second thing to consider when selecting garden composters is the size you require. We stock composters in a range of sizes, from a 70cm wooden bin all the way up to a 2m extra large composter. Selecting which size wooden compost box you need will vary depending on both the size of your garden, as well as how much compost you need. For example, if you only have a few planters, selecting a large compost bin will maybe not be the best for you, as you're going to end up with a large mound of compost that you can't use. In addition to this, a large wooden compost bin may not be the best for you if you don't have a lot of waste to fill it with. 

One final thought on selecting the composter that will suit your needs is the location. A compost bin that is close to your kitchen is ideal, as this means you will be able to save time and you'll find it easier to stick to composting. However, a large compost bin may not be suitable if there is not enough space near your kitchen. In addition to this, you'll need to consider how the sun interacts with your compost bin, as it can speed up the rate at which your mulch decomposes.

Overall, choosing a composter is not as simple as it may seem, as there is much to consider, especially with sizes, location and materials. If you're stuck, feel free to contact us to get some advice. Happy composting!
