Generations of gardeners have made compost using open wooden bins, often cobbled together from pallets. The Simply Natural Composter has a neater appearance, better construction, and it's treated with an eco-friendly preservative for a long life in the garden. You can put it together without tools in a few minutes, and you can easily remove slats to harvest finished compost or to relocate the composter. The slats are carefully spaced to allow aeration without letting compost spill out.

This worked so well, I bought two!

About Me Avid Gardener
I throw in all kitchen vegetable scraps, including tea bags, together with general garden clippings except weeds, anything with thorns and ferns as they don't compost quickly. Old potting soil and broken down coconut basket liners have found their way in there too.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Slats cracked after 1 season
from Arlington, VA
I have this composter in my community garden. After one year in the garden the slats have cracked and started to fall apart. I'm not going to have to replace the composter with somethng more sturdy.

I had my kids stain it with leftover deck stain to enhance durability I hope (an easy half hour doing the whole thing for the 2 of them). Looks even better, now for urban composting in a smallish yard where it is easily visible. Capacity is as expected; about all we can handle here in a city.I agree that the wood is not the sturdiest I've seen, but, it's looking to last a good few years. Overall happy with the purchase/worth it, esp. give what was available at the local big box home store for about the same price.

Attractive for urban garden
from Denver, CO
We have purchased three of these. They are nice-looking and easy to use. Our only problem is that is easy for the top slats to be broken from the usual accidents that can happen in a garden, such as bumping with a tool.
Great product! Easy to build and use.
from Mount Rainier, MD
We bought this as a second composter so that we can rotate use with another. It was super easy to build, and holds a lot. Also, it looks good in the yard, and the dog can't get into it.
Well designed and easy to build!
from Broomall, PA
Although this appears to be well-designed and is certainly easy to construct, for the price there should be a matching cover provided.The page of information on composting that is on the back side of the instructions is helpful!
Even better than anticipated!

My old black plastic composer (provided by my city) had broken so I treated myself to this wooden one. I am very happy with it! It hwicks twice what the old one did, is prettier, makes it easier on my back and composts faster. It's the best!

About Me Getting Started
We filled all 3 bins. So far so good...
Didn't last one season
This went together easily and looks great. The first time I dismantled it to turn the compost, however, many of the boards split down the length. I called and got replacement boards (gardeners supply was helpful), but the same thing happened again.
