This cedar compost bin allows you to turn household waste into a natural fertilizer for your lawn, garden, and flower beds. Simply layer green materials (such as vegetable and fruit peelings, coffee grounds, tea bags, and grass clippings) and browns (such as eggshells, cardboard, corncobs, and leaves) and allow materials to begin to compost. The bins’ open design makes it easy to turn the pile every two to three weeks with a shovel or pitchfork to aerate the product and speed up the breakdown process. Depending on the climate and the mix of materials, your compost will be ready to use in 3 to 12 months. Create a continuous supply of compost with the Cedar Wood Composter Add- On Kit (sold separately).
