Create a simple and inexpensive compost bin using a few wooden pallets and some reclaimed timber.
Your will need: 4 x wooden pallets, 100mm exterior screws, exterior latch with screws, 2 x exterior hinges with screws, reclaimed 2.4m fence post, Resene Moss & Mould Killer, Resene Timber and Deck Wash, Resene Waterborne Woodsman tinted to Resene Cherrywood, bucket, garden hose with clean running water, paintbrush, paint stirrer, saw, screwdriver, spade, pencil, rubber gloves, stiff-bristled brush, tape measure.
Top tips: Build up your compost heap in layers, alternating dry and twiggy matter with greener waste (such as lawn clippings). Shredded cardboard and newspaper, vegetable peelings and even old woollen or cotton material will all decompose nicely. Site your compost bin in a sunny spot with good air movement. A square of carpet placed on top of the compost heap will prevent it from becoming saturated during very wet weather.
