If you’re looking to start composting but turning an entire corner of your yard into something resembling The Great Trash Heap isn’t for you, this double-decker drum composter gives you easy and quick composting in a small space.
One of the big hassles of composting is turning over the compost. This double-decker drum composter removes the turning hassle. You won’t be sweating over a pile of compost, just turning the crank on the drums every once in awhile to mix and aerate your compost.
You’ll need two food-grade barrels, some 4×4 posts, galvanised pipe, and access to a workshop with some basic power tools like a circular saw and drill. When you’re done you’ll have a composting station that offers easy compost mixing, keeps animals out, and helps accelerate your trip from kitchen scraps to gardening gold.
