Gardeners refer to composting as “turning your garbage into gold” because it saves landfill space, conserves natural resources, and improves soil quality. Items that can be added to your compost pile include coffee grounds, tea bags, fruit and vegetable scraps, leaves, hair and grass clippings. The “Garden Gourmet” backyard composter is an attractive bin that fits neatly into almost any backyard space thanks to its efficient design. This easy to assemble bin is made from 51% recycled plastic and includes convenient features like a sliding bottom door to remove compost. This is an ideal choice for beginners since it includes a basic composting and user guide.
