DescriptionSpecification Reviews Questions

N.B. the image features the 3 bay 5ft version of the compost bin, this product is the 2 bay 4ft version. The build is exactly the same, just 2 bays instead of 3 pictured. More detailed photos to follow.

Our 2 bay composters are built around the 'New Zealand Box' method where the compost materials are mixed by moving them from one bay to another. This method mixes the material, adds air and ultimately results in a fine grade finished compost for use in your vegetable garden.

The unit is made up of sturdy 3 inch square (7.5cm) corner posts with timbers permanently fixed to the back and sides of the unit. The centre posts also feature an internal groove which allows the dividing wall to be added and removed easily when moving material from one side to the other. Our composters also include our unique bracket system on the front of the box which allows the retaining boards to be removed for filling and emptying the bin; our system even allows you to remove the bottom row of boards without removing the top!

The corner fixing posts are designed to be buried in the ground but can also be easily modifies to suit placing on a hard surface. Please contact us if this is a requirement for your garden.

Our wooden composters are the most forgiving type of bin as the increased air circulation afforded by the slatted sides means you need not be as careful with your mix as you would with a closed plastic unit.

The Kit features as follows:

5 no. 180cm (6ft) by 17.5cm tall treated timber boards.
16 no. 90cm (3ft) by 17.5cm tall treated timber boards.
6 no. 7.5cm (3inch) square and 5ft high treated timber corner posts.
14 no. 85cm (2ft 9inch) by 15cm (6 inch) tall treated timber boards for removable front slats.
28 no. Heavy duty injection moulded fixing brackets.
70 no. 5.0 x 60 Self tapping wood screws.
56 no. 4.0 x 30 Self tapping wood screws.
1 no. 180cm (3ft) 3in x 2in Joining rail.

Hi there, You mention that they are designed for posts to be dug into the ground but can be modified for placement on a 'hard surface'. Why is a hard surface necessary? Can it not just sit on the ground? Best regards Joe

Hi Joe. The hard surface is only a suggestion as it makes it easier to dig out the compost. You can sit them directly on to a flat area of lawn etc

Do you sell lids for the wooden composters - would be a necessity I think, even in sunny Meath.
Answered by Andrew

Hi Paul. Thank you for your question. We don't sell lids for them at present but we are looking at it. Our experience is they don't need a lid as the biggest issue with composting is it can dry out and hence no need for a lid however it is something we have been asked for before so we will look in to it in the next few weeks.
