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 2-weeks to 3-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-month to 12-months. To keep a continuous supply, create a multi-bin system with our add-on kits, after 1-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 3-bin system will keep the process moving seamlessly. Greenes composting bins are available in 48 in. x 48 in. x 31 in. 41.33 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-bins or 3-bins composting system with purchase of greens add-on kits

Would it hold up to being used as a raised bed?

Asked by vric February 21, 2021
2
Answers

Probably not. The connections are not that strong. This company makes raised bed containers too. I'd get one of those for actual gardening.

Answers

I think it would be difficult to build a door in the compost bin since it rests on top of the ground. The corner "posts" are not anchored in any way. I'm sure you could construct a door, but it might be easier to build a complete pen from scratch.

Is there any reason why I should not stain this wood?

Asked by Railf May 20, 2020
3
Answers

If you're going to use the compost for a vegetable garden I would not recommend staining it as the toxins from the stain would leach into the compost and your vegetables.

I don't want to set it on the dirt. Is there any problem with setting this on patio blocks?

Asked by Railf May 20, 2020
1
Answer

No problem, as long as the blocks are big enough to support the side pieces too. You probably want the blocks more or less under all teh sides, like a foundation to keep the compost in the bin.

Staining will not harm the wood. I painted a design on one side of mine.

No door just need to remove a few panels from the front. My panels are difficult to remove so I just leave them out for use as spares.

Simple, quality cedar compost bin. Would be 5 star except for the fussy, annoying spacers that go between the slats. I ended up gluing them to the slats to make removal/replacement a little easier. Also apply plenty of lube to the channels that the slats go into to minimize binding. I also lined mine with some roofing paper for additional protection.

I love the simplicity and flexibility of this compost bin setup. The cedar planks slide into the corner posts. You can increase or decrease the spacing between the planks as you like. You can add sets on, or you can dismantle the whole thing and store it away. I love it. But realize its a rustic storage bin system. You have to fork and flip the compost yourself.

Easy to construct, materials are roughly cut, but you're literally storing dirt with it. Just wear gloves when you're putting it together so you don't get splinters.

This is a large compost bin that looks attractive at the back of our property. Parts of it went together easily, while other parts were not cut out as well and took more of an effort. Fortunately the bin includes extra wedges for between the boards, as these piece split easily. I had more than enough to finish the bin. I would definitely consider adding on to it in the future.
