Composter

Vertical composter

Recycling green and kitchen waste is possible in an economical and simple way, without having to resort to disposal services, thanks to the installation of a composter inside your garden. The generation of compost is a simple process, which does not require special interventions other than those of periodic control and attention to the quality of the material inserted in the structure. In particular, the vertical composter is the one that involves fewer interventions by the user, who will limit himself to inserting waste from time to time. The vertical structure favors, in fact, the correct stratification of the green or culinary waste inserted, allowing the filtering of air and light in the different levels, to speed up the decomposition process of the materials. The upper opening allows the insertion of waste, while a lower opening allows the extraction of the compost now generated. Composters can be made of wood, plastic or metal; in the first case the material, as it is natural and itself subject to rapid decomposition, will be carefully treated in such a way as to guarantee maximum durability and resistance. Vertical composters are ideal for those who have limited space available and can also be placed on terraces and balconies, depending on the size of the structure itself. it will be carefully treated in order to guarantee maximum durability and resistance.

Pit compost pot


For those who have a green space to exploit, the vertical composter is not the only possible solution. A valid alternative is constituted by the compost pots, to be placed inside the ground in such a way as to make them completely invisible. In this way it will be possible to avoid any risk of imperfections in the green space, as well as the spread of bad smells near the house. The compost bin therefore allows you to avoid any type of problem or difficulty relating to aesthetics, while at the same time creating a sheltered and functional place in which to eliminate your green waste. The compost bin, on the other hand, requires some more attention than the vertical composter: As it cannot guarantee the passage of air and the correct filtering of sunlight in the different layers, it will be necessary to turn the layers over in such a way as to bring out, from time to time, those already composted, favoring the decomposition of the new material. The risk is that water will deposit on the bottom and create an excessively humid environment: also in this case, moving the compost periodically is a solution, together with the evaluation of the right mix of dry and wet waste to be inserted to create a quality compost. and able to best fertilize the garden.

The compost


Compost has a high ecological value because it allows to obtain two precious results at the same time: on the one hand, organic waste is disposed of at zero cost, eliminating transport costs and disposal in special centers; on the other hand, it favors the use, always at no cost, of an excellent fertilizer for the garden, completely healthy and natural. The quality of the compost obtained, however, largely depends on the type of waste and their combination: not all organic waste is suitable for use. In particular, green waste can be used in large quantities, while more attention must be paid to organic waste from the kitchen, especially if the remains of cooked food: in this case the percentages must be reduced to maintain a good quality of the compost produced. .

The purchase


The composters can be purchased at any center dedicated to do-it-yourself and gardening: the selection must take into account the characteristics of the space in which the structure will be placed. The first major distinction is between vertical composters or pot compost bowls: the former will be able to make the most of the smallest spaces, the latter will guarantee, in the face of some extra attention, perfect camouflage for the benefit of aesthetics and reduced risks of diffusion of bad smells, even if a quality vertical composter is able to solve the problem with the same effectiveness. The dimensions of the composter must be chosen not only based on the characteristics of the space, but also taking into account the amount of compost needed and the amount of waste that you think you will have to compost, for a purchase commensurate with the actual use. As for the compost pots, it is possible to independently carry out the works for insertion into the ground or request the intervention of workers appointed by the reseller company, to have the maximum safety of a work carried out artfully and the guarantee of a composter ready to use in a very short time.
