The Best Method For Composting
We have used these bins ourselves some having been in service for over 10 years and are still working well today with almost no maintenance required at all.
Set up on your bin on gravel or a surface that will allow air flow underneath cover the top of your compost with a loose fitting cover that will allow water to pass through.
We use a piece of old hessian carpet to hold in the heat but will pass rainwater
Try to allow air flow underneath via large stones or gravel, this will also allow drainage.
Try to keep the garden waste /cuttings etc cut up as small as possible to speed up composting. Mix the composting materials and introduce some vegetable kitchen waste and a small amount of garden soil, or a composting aid with each layer of composting materials that you add to your bin.
Try to rotate the layers (if possible). If you have bought the extension bin/s remove some of the separating panels and drag the materials across to the empty bin (using a rake) occasionally to aerate the compost. Adding a little garden soil each time you do this will rapidly increase the rate of decomposition.
PLEASE NOTE: The compost bin add-on is 3 sides only, allowing you to add to your original compost bin. The pictures are to show the combinations possible with the product.
