Cedar Compost Bins

When our pallet compost bins broke down and needed to be replaced, we decided in invest in wood that would hopefully last longer. We used cedar fence slats to do the job. We followed the same basic design as our pallet bins, with the sliding, removable slats at the front. So far, we have been very pleased with them.

Using Weedblock

The key difference to our compost bin set up this time was to line the area with newspaper, cardboard and weedblock. We had a real issue with grass and weeds in our last compost area, so hopefully this will reduce that. We did not put the weedblock under the compost bins as we want the material in the bins to come in contact with the microorganisms in the soil under the bins.
