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.
