Our LEAF BIN is 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 access to the Leaf Compost. The galvanised wire mesh is made up of 15mm X 25mm squares. The restraining bar across the front at the top is removable to allow easy unimpeded access.
LIDS for LEAF BIN 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 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.
The wire Mesh used is strong enough for animal runs, all types of aviaries, pet cages and enclosures; as well as Leaves.See 7 Composting Steps (Click Here)
