We now have 4 new functioning compost bays, and as promised, here are some views of the finished product.
Because of the slope, the ground needed to be levelled once all of the structure was in place.
Close-up of some of the details.
We wired the mesh panels to the star pickets.
Geotextile stapled to the inside of the timber lattice.
The 5 metres of geotextile and 1 star picket were the only new purchases we made for this project. Everything else was already here and most of it had been salvaged or recycled.
One of the most important considerations when planning this project was the street view. The back of the bays are parallel to and only 1 metre inside our boundary fence which faces the road.
I am very pleased with the result, and if anything, it has actually enhanced the view from the street.
Looks Great. Happy Composting!
They do look great. Wish I had someone who could make these neatly. Our attempts would be higgledy piddledy.
These look so good Yvonne. They really do add to the charming streetscape of your property. Your lawn and trees look so lush, you both should be very proud of your efforts.
My hubby and I are starting our veggie garden adventure. We have a compost bin started, actually a 3 sided pallet structure. I know we will need another.
I’m really enjoying all the back posts from your blog, all the best, Lorraine 💁♀️
