Product Overview

Create an environmentally friendly, economic composting system with Greenes Composting Bins. These cedar bins allow you to turn household waste into a natural food for your lawn, garden, and flower beds. Simply layer greens (such as vegetable and fruit peelings, coffee grounds, tea bags, and grass clippings) and browns (such as eggshells, cardboard, corncobs, and cotton towels) and allow materials to begin to compost. The bins' open design makes it easy to turn the pile every two to three weeks with a shovel or pitchfork to aerate the product and speed up the breakdown process. Depending on the climate and the mix of materials, your compost will be ready to use in 3 to 12 months. To keep a continuous supply, create a multi-bin system with our add-on kits; after one bin is full and the materials have begun to break down, simply move them to the next bin and begin the process again in the first bin. A three-bin system will keep the process moving seamlessly. Greenes composting bins are available in 36 in. x 36 in. x 31 in./23.25 cu. ft. and include 4 posts, 28 boards, and 48 spacers. Cover with a tarp or plywood (not included) if desired.
  • Standard kit includes 4 posts, 28 boards, and 48 spacers
  • Made from naturally rot- and insect-resistant cedar
  • Assembles with only a rubber mallet
  • Easy to add new material and remove finished product
  • Forms a 2 or 3 bin composting system with purchase of Greenes add-on kits

You can make a platform for it without a problem. Just make the platform a hair bit bigger than the composter. It's free standing. I'd recommend getting retainer blocks and building on that as almost everything else will rot out due to the moisture at the bottom.

I understand that cedar is naturally rot/insect resistant. But if I wanted to further "bulletproo...

Best way to "bulletproof" is to char it with a torch (shou sugi ban). It'll water proof it and you won't have to worry about chemicals leaching into the compost when adding to herbs or crops.

Yes. I only needed a rubber mallet to assemble. Took my about an hour, including having to take a few boards off when I missed placing a spacer.

Very Nice Composter
I recently purchased two Greenes Fence composters from Home Depot but was challenged by a hilly location for the installation. Using some bricks that were lying around, I created a level foundation. I ended up setting up 3 composters of varying heights. The product arrived quickly from my online order and was very easy to assemble. The bins looked so nice, we decided to treat the exterior with Thompson's water seal. See attached photos.

I can recommend it assuming you don't ship an incomplete package, again. I like the product and had bought raised beds previously. Easy assembly, but unfortunately my package came short seven (7) boards. I did not count the content prior to assembling, and it is not worth dis-assembling to mail back. Hopefully they will ship me an additional 7 boards. Please.............

Hey everyone! I ended up getting this unit plus the two add ons. I started off with one bin because I was worried from reading other reviews that some of the pieces were difficult to fit together, and wanted to see how things went before committing. Overall, this was a breeze to put together, and I actually enjoyed the process! I did not even use my rubber mallet on the first two compost bins. The trick is to slide the side-boards down very slowly and evenly, otherwise they will catch. I recommend wearing good quality gloves because splinters will be a problem if you don't. I used garden gloves with rubber palms. I also recommend building it in the spot you plan to use it. It can be moved fairly easy but the bottom slats tend to slide out if it's lifted because they are not nailed or glued to the posts. However, once it's in it's resting place, it's quite sturdy. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I noticed a quality control issue while building the last compost bin. I think one of the posts was not routed straight and the side-boards were a little more difficult to maneuver. That said, it was nothing the rubber mallet couldn't handle, and I'm glad I had one handy. Because of covid-19, I decided to pick the item up at Home Depot and used their "curbside pickup" for the first time. It was a piece of cake and saved me $50 on a delivery fee. The packages are medium-sized, and were loaded into the back of my car for me. I hope this review helps you make a decision one way or the other. I believe this item will last a long time, and would definitely buy it again.

awesome composter
Super easy to put together, compost gets plenty of airflow, and it looks really nice in my yard. I was using plastic trash bins with holes drilled in them but they were so ugly and inefficient. I’m so happy I spent the money on these cedar composters and I highly recommend them!

I have a mixed review. I ordered 5 of these in two separate orders a month apart. The product attractive and is easy to assemble. Unfortunately there was a problem with each order. In both cases the wood components were not made correctly, a different component in each order. This forced me to call Green's Fence Company's customer service twice. In both cases their customer service was great and immediately FedExed me replacement parts. So I have mixed feelings. The product and customer service is good, but the quality control of the product coming out of the factory is poor.

This cedar wood composter is exactly what we were looking for. It was relatively easy to assemble and it's the perfect size for household waste. We have it placed beside our deck, so that we can just drop veggies, grass clippings, dead flowers, etc. right into it.
