Lots of experience (aka trial and error) has led us to some common features on our compost bins that work well. You won’t find these on other clearly inferior bins made with less loving attention and detail.
- FSC-certified redwood
- Removable panels for easy turning and removal
- Nifty hitch-pin system for securing removable panels (photo to right and below)
- “Top-prop” for hands-full additions of new composting material — basically, when your arms are full of veggie scraps you want an easy way to get them inside the bin and not all over your clothes (photo below)
- A custom base should be added to level things when the bin is on a slope (see example in photo below)
