Recycling in Action

If you’ve got a medium – large garden the recycling bins alone are unlikely to cope.

If you are keen on recycling garden waste then there is an opportunity to create your own compost.

We can put our garden and kitchen waste to great effect with a composting system. This isn’t a new idea it’s been around for decades. I remember my parents being strong advocates.

Did you know that about 40% of the average dustbin contents are suitable for composting? The result is a rich, dark, crumbly mixture you can dig back into your soil. This will help feed and nourish your plants leading to much healthier growth.

You need to be careful about what you include in the compost, and you need a good structure to store everything in. Over the next few months we plan to share with you some hints and tips on how you can make the most of your compost.

In the meantime, here are a few of the composting systems Gardenproud have been creating for clients. Typically for a larger garden a bespoke system is 2 or 3 bays, but you can buy off- shelf – rotary systems that speed up the composting process and provide for gardener friendly topping up and barrowing away.

For further information, or an estimate to create a composting system to suit your garden please contact Tim Sykes on 07725 173820, or contact us at
