Multichamber economy : For the large self-catering garden compost economy is divided into two or three chambers ideal – a few weeks after the preparation of the compost will be reallocated to the neighboring chamber, thereby mixed and well ventilated, and can continue to mature, while in the first chamber again new green waste are deposited. The advantage: “Alt” and remain “new” separately, which guarantees a consistently good compost quality in the different stages of maturation.
Construction and compost removal : The posts are held together by tie rods and screwed, our supplier recommends that they be placed on four paving stones, so they do not sink into the ground. To receive the larch boards the concrete pillars are provided with matching grooves in which the boards are loosely inserted – another attachment do not need them. Thus, in order to create sufficient space for the removal of mature compost, the bottom boards are removed without much effort.
