Comments about Product: I'm very pleased with this product. Upon ordering, it came to me in less than a week. Box comes with 4 large sides, and a handful of slats. Material was in pretty good condition. Two of the slats were just a tad bit warped, but it won't affect the use of the composter. With my Dewalt drill, this took about 10 minutes to put together. The pre-drilled holes really made it a cinch to complete. I may end up buying a couple more of these this year and join them together. Great product!

nice compost bin
Comments about Product: I would give this a very good rating except we only got 4 of the long 2 x 1/2 screws instead of the six required which required a trip to the store on Saturday morning, which as you can imagine really interrupted the flow of the yard work that was planned. How hard would it be to add a quality control step to count the screws included when packaging, since they are necessary for successfully assembling the unit? Other than that, it is a very nice unit which I am not embarrassed to keep in my back side yard with some visibility. I think it will be easy to use too.

Comments about Product: I purchased this Natural White Cedar Slat-Sid Composter earlier this summer. I love it. I have a small garden and it has worked well for me. Easy to put together, fits well into the space I have for it and it is making great compost. It is easy to use. I would highly recommend this product. I have been very pleased with all the things I have ordered from Plow and Heart.

Comments about Product: Arrived in perfect condition. I found this compost bin easy to assemble by myself. All parts fit together with no problems, and the pre-drilled holes matched up. I really like the removable slats in the front. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Great form and function!
Comments about Product: Love the look of this composter so much that I bought two. Since my two horses produce a lot of "compostable material" I was afraid I would quickly run out of room for leaves, vegetable scraps, etc. Shouldn't have worried as everything composts down rapidly due to the great ventilation. That being said, it would be great to have a removable lid to keep moisture in during the hot/dry summer months. I have had many compost bins over the years, most of the enclosed plastic ones leave the compost in a big lump that is difficult to aerate and also remove! This bin is sturdy enough (not beefy) and is easy to move when empty.

Just what I wanted!
Comments about Product: This was a beginner project for me and it was a good one for learning to use my husband's power drill. All the pieces were there; all pre-drilled holes were as they said they would be. I assembled it first without the screws to make sure I had it right before starting. I think it went together in under an hour and the finished product was beautiful. Just what I wanted!

Comments about Product: This is a large, good looking composter.It weathers like all cedar, which is fine with me. I have had one for several years and needed a little more composting space.The first one has an aged look but is goood as new in terms of function. I would rather minimize the use of plastic in my organic garden.Besides the above mentioned ingredients, I put in non-glossy newspaper that has been used as chicken litter, roughly torn brown cardboard, and occasional soil.I don't turn the compost to speak of, but do alternate types of material and water it in our summer CA droughts to keep the composting beasties moist and happy.I knocked my rating down a point because the sides were not predrilled as they were last time and as the instructions continue to state. Top pieces were predrilled. I was missing a screw.( I could have lost it.) Most kits seem to throw in a extra of each size but none here.Also, one board was cut too short. Still usable, but a little confusing and harder on the aging back than my first bin.I love that you can just slide out slats to remove compost. (In my case, the finished stuff is at the bottom.)Most bins have small capacity and a small opening to remove compost. This is much better in both regards.It would be heaven if there could be removable slats on two sides, but it would probably be hard to keep the constuction sturdy.

Comments about Product: The holes are not predrilled as stated in the assembly instructions. They are for some boards, but not all. The photos are not very clear, either.
It is one of the more handsome composting units I've seen. It fits nicely in our yard and is easy to use.
