COMPOSTING

Organic Material to Compost

  • Vegetable and fruit peelings
  • Tea leaves and coffee grounds
  • Crushed egg shells
  • Grass cuttings
  • Leaves from non-coniferous trees and shrubs
  • Woody prunings
  • Straw, hay, wool, sawdust and pets' bedding
  • Vacuum dust
  • Wood ash

Avoid meat, fish, and cooked food, weed seeds, diseased plant material, disposable diapers, glossy newsprint and coal ash.  Though some of these items can provide desirable nutrients to the soil in a controlled composting environment, they will make your compost batches an odorous, sloppy mess, attracting unwanted insects and neighborhood critters.
Hand Crafted
 
Constructed using stainless steel hardware, dovetail, spline, and dowel joinery, these cedar composters are both easy to use and built to last.   
.
These two-door, tumbler style composters are set on top of sturdy cedar bases.  There are two available options:  the Wheelbarrow Model and the Sawhorse Model.   The difference is in appearance only.  Both models have two non-pneumatic, plastic hub wheels in the front that are turf friendly, so no ruts or gouges in your lawn when moving your Cedar Composting Creation around the yard. 

The details make these composters a piece of craftsmanship and a work of art.
Capacity (both models)
  • 4.2 cubic feet
  • 31.3 gallons
  • 118.5 Liters

COMPOSTER FEATURES

HANDLE / AXLE


The tumbler style containment barrel eliminates the need to turn composting material by hand with a shovel or pitch fork.  The handle, axle and bearing configuration of the Cedar Composting Creation allows for effortless turning of the barrel.  Additionally, the axle/handle assembly is constructed of 1/8 wall steel tubing and powder coated for durability and long lasting attractive appearance.

DOORS


The containment barrel features two access/unload doors that facilitate super easy and clean dropping of composted material.  Simply open one door, rotate it to the bottom, then open the top door and using the clean out paddle (supplied with composter) push the composted material out through the open door at the bottom, precisely where you wish to drop it.  There is no need of a shovel to transfer composted material from composter to wheelbarrow, then from wheelbarrow to the garden. None of it.  You won’t believe how easy it is!  The door hardware is made of stainless steel, and, like the axle and handle, is powder coated.  Heavy duty hinges provide smooth door operation and slide barrel bolts keep the doors secured when not in use.

VENTS

​​
Screened aluminum louver vents mounted on each end of the containment barrel accommodate cross ventilation providing the needed airflow required in the decomposition process.​​

DRAINS

​​Over saturation of the compost batch will lend to soupy, odorous material, slowing the composting process.  Cedar Composting Creations are equipped with screened drainage ports that are installed on the front and rear ends of the containment barrel…to allow evacuation of excess water.  Note:  adding dry leaves and grass clippings or straw also helps maintain proper moisture content of a composting batch.​​

SCREWS


All exposed screws are made of high quality 316 grade stainless steel.  You will not see rust runs from these screws streaming down the wood, affecting the appearance of your Cedar Composting Creation.  Hidden construction fasteners are all coated exterior grade screws.  Miscellaneous retaining washers and pins are also made of … you guessed it…high grade stainless steel!

EXTERIOR / INTERIOR


Although cedar wood is naturally resistant to insects, rot and milew, exterior grade sealants provide additional protection against the elements, further extending the already long life span of these Cedar Composting Creations.  The sealants  allow the wood to gracefully patina to a silver-gray, commonly seen on the exterior of traditional north eastern coastal homes.   That is why each Cedar Composting Creation frame, containment barrel exterior, along with the flower box are given a coat of Thompson's Clear Water Seal before leaving our facility.

​​
The containment barrel "interior" is coated with a more robust Minwax exterior grade Helmsman Spar Urethane for protection against the high moisture content and heat associated with the composting process.  It is highly recommended that these coatings be reapplied at least once a year for maintenance.

QUALITY


Construction, materials, coatings all come together to form a truly high end, quality product that we at Cedar Composting Creations are proud to offer our customers.

CEDAR CARE & MAINTENANCE

Cedar will naturally develop a gray patina and last for many years without any maintenance.  However, Cedar Composting Creations are sold with a seal coat applied inside and out.  This will provide added protection against  the elements while maintaining the wood's natural beauty and slow the patinaing process.  The User and Maintenance Guide included with the composter describes how to keep your composter looking great.
