Compost is most often produced in wooden compost bins. Our largest wooden bins, have the capacity to generate hundreds of litres of compost. They are often constructed in a modular fashion, allowing many units to be joined together and composting to be cycled throughout the year to provide a constant supply. Even though they are often exposed to the weather, you may make them more effective by covering them with a wooden top.

Your organic, biodegradable trash may be transformed into organic, nutrient-dense compost with the help of a wooden composter, which can then be utilised to nurture your plants. These are of a good quality, will endure for a long time, and have a capacity of up to a litre for holding biodegradable items such as pieces of fruit and vegetables, leaves, and garden clippings.

How to use wooden compost bins for composting

Because the microorganisms (bacteria and fungus) that turn garbage into compost function most effectively in circumstances that are consistent, it is essential that the site is not exposed to extremes of temperature and moisture. Place your wooden compost bin in a location that receives either light shade or shade; it is typically more practical to choose a part of the garden that receives shade.

If you must compost on a hard surface, put a shovelful of soil to the wooden compost bin and use a base made of earth if possible; this will allow for drainage and access to the organisms living in the soil.

Even if it is not enclosed in a bin, an open heap will ultimately decompose into compost.

Benefits

Wooden compost bins will keep part of the warmth and moisture that is generated throughout the composting process, which makes faster and better compost.

Compost can be produced by any of the compost bins that are now available from Gardening Works as long as the bins prevent rain from getting in and keep at least part of the warmth within, allow drainage, and include ventilation holes.
