3-Bin Wire Composter for 'cold composting' - I have this in my yard for a few seasons now and use it for leaves and grass clippings. Do not add weeds to it!!! The piles do not get hot enough to kill them off and they will just wait and respread once the compost is finished and ready for use. It is a way to compost all the healthy cuttings and clippings from your property and garden. Within 2-3 months....I have beautiful compost to spread around my beds and to use in my outside pots.
