LEAF MOULD BINS are designed to compost solely leaves which when composted on mass tend to clog together excluding air, hence the advantage of the wire mesh. They are available Free-standing or as Add-ons to one of our Compost Bins. The front panel slides out from the top allowing open access to the Leaf Compost. The galvanised wire mesh is made up of 15mm (1/2″) X 25mm (1″) squares. The restraining bar across the front at the top is removable to allow easy unimpeded access.

LID for Leaf Mould Bin Close up of a Leaf Mould Bin LID
LEAF MOULD BIN LIDS are designed to compress the leaves and speed up decomposition. They also allow more leaves to be gathered in the bin. The leaves quickly come into contact with moisture and the micro-organisms needed to break them down into leaf mould compost. Without lids the leaves tend to dry out on the surface and not break down as efficiently as those at the bottom of the heap which are weighted down by those above and in contact with soil. Weights can be used to compress the leaves further.
