The benefits of a quality compost bin are practically limitless. Having a really decent compost bin about the garden, you can save you an awful lot of problems in terms of what you do with your garden waste and how you can manage the structure of your garden completely and in its entirety. Having a high-quality compost bin doesn’t necessarily just mean you are going to end up with good quality soil that you can use for potting soil or for the flower beds, it also says that you can be environmentally friendly and do your little bit to improve the planet for the rest of the well as well. So what we are going to do is take a look at some of the very best compost bins that are available and see which one would make the most sense for your garden.

Personally, I absolutely love to have a high quality compost bin in the garden because it can make such a big deal to the garden structure and organisation of my garden, that I simply cannot live without one. They are extremely useful and the other great thing about them, you always forget, is the fact that if we didn’t have one, it would almost certainly mean going to the dump and wasting money on fuel to get rid of our garden waste. But having a compost bin we creates a situation that we don’t need to drive anywhere to get rid of a garden waste so you end up being exponentially environmentally friendly as a result.

So what I’d like to do is go through some of the compost bins that make sense for a home Garden. It will really help you to understand where I’m coming from and what you can gain from having one around the home. It’s not just the fact that you can get the compost, there’s a whole chain of positive events by having a compost bin and I hope that you can also take advantage of these as I have too.

The best compost bin is the Whitefurze 220L Compost Bin

If you like me and you go to small garden setting with around 30 foot and it’s just a simple case of having some flower beds and a couple of trees in the garden and then I would highly recommend that you go with the Whitefurze 220L Compost Bin. I also have a fair bit of lawn that contributes to the composting considerably but in real terms you don’t really need anything much larger than the 220 litre compost bin to get the job done.

It’s not just the size of a compost bin that makes me really like it, the fact that it has got some really brilliant features that allow it to stand out amongst its competitors in the same price and size range bracket. It has an entirely easy to use removable lid which means that you can basically add compost extremely easily. This is a real bonus if you’re cutting the lawn and you go throw in bundles of grass for example, and you find yourself in a position where you trying to lift the grass off and into the top of the compost bin. Having such a large opening allows you to get the grass straight into the compost bin without losing too much over the sides and as a result creating more mess that needs cleaning up afterwards.

A nice added bonus for me is the fact that this compost bin is actually made of entirely recycled materials as well. It’s great to see that we’re already recycling plastic and turning it into compost bins and other useful waste management facilities for the garden which is very environmentally friendly. One of the biggest problems with a compost bin in fact it is made of plastic, and that’s kind of counterintuitive when we consider that you’ve got a situation whereby we are trying to improve the environment, but we are using plastic to do so, but by using recycled materials, I know that we still creating a bit of a plastic issue, but we are really solving one big and much wider issue in that we would otherwise have to put this plastic into a landfill site to clear it anyway. This method of recycling plastic is a very positive step forward.

Concluding buying a quality compost bin

One of the most important things to consider when you’re buying a compost bin is that you get one that’s long lasting and it will give you high quality compost very quickly. One of the main key features of a compost bin is to hold the heat and moisture in very well. If the heat and moisture are held in, you’ll find that you’ll get compost ready quickly because these are the two main ingredients so to speak in making composting or at least creating the right environment for it. Come together to make high-quality compost quickly. If you’ve got a really strong better plastic, it means that your compost bin will be extremely durable and long-lasting. Many compost bins come with a 12-month manufacturer warranty and so therefore make sure you take advantage of this as well. The last thing you want is to spend all the money and find yourself in a situation whereby the compost bin doesn’t even last 12 months. Especially when there are plenty of suppliers that will be more than willing to offer that kind of length of warranty anyway on your compost bin.
