I just bought a shredder that was hungry and I needed a bin quickly. A had couple of small pieces of plywood for the start but I needed more. I have a lot of sticks so I decided to make a wattle, a fence woven with sticks. It worked out just fine and I added another bin using a common wall. It allows good air from the sides, too. How long will it last? At least this season is all I ask.
I needed a quick, cheap compost bin
Looks great! I prefer this kind of bin, it doesn't stick out like some do. I had a tumbler, it was ugly.
Some folks use pallets. Many stores here just throw them away and are glad to give them to you.
IT is okay as a temporary as long as the neighbors does not see meaning hidden.
I'm fortunate that I have good neighbors that don't criticize. And I share my produce.
More. I went back inside the concrete and put this plastic lattice all the way around , tieing it together with aluminum wire , cut in 7" strips from a cable I scrounged .The lattice was at a repo mobile home that I bought and had moved . Now the compost is my raised bed for veggies and will be in separate raised beds next year . I have another compost bed working at my son's across the street . It's only two weeks old and will be ready next year
That is great, Digger. Mine collapsed, I guess I made it too high and didn't put the poles in deep enough Used some as mulch on the gardens. Waiting for Spring, hopefully dryer than last year. Finished 18+ inches over normal and most of it is still here.
