Compost Bins


This wooden compost bin is really easy to assemble and to use. It features sliding panels for easy access to your compost and uses a solid wood design to prevent compost from drying out and breaking down unevenly.

Made from FSC certified wood dipped in a non-toxic wood protection which will not kill worms or bugs in the compost (they are not pressure treated/tanalised). It is recommended that you re-treat annually with a similar product or preservative when the wood is dry.

The height of these bins are kept low to reduce back strain when lifting materials into the bin, additional modules (3-sided) can be purchased separately to double or treble your composting capacity. 

Approximate Dimensions: W90 x D90 x H75cm
Capacity: 500 litre approx


This compost bin does not include a base so earthworms can access and enrich the soil.

Super product dm-wilcock on 5 May 2024

So easy to put together and very quick. Fantastic product at a great price.

Very pleased with these bins Marian Beesley on 14 April 2023

I bought this and the extension bin . They were easy to assemble and I managed to get them level and fairly square on by placing the corner posts on bricks, as suggested. They provide a good amount of compost storage and, being solid, look like theyll last well. They are also very functional and look good too!

Superior compost bin tracyj on 20 October 2021

I decided to treat myself to new compost bins as my old ones were rotting. I bought this one & the 3-sided extension. The quality is great & they slotted together easily to make 2 good-sized bins, with no gaps for the compost to fall through (which is what happened with my old bins). They even smell great! Very pleased, thank you.

Great compost bin julie8derek on 4 May 2021

I picked this compost bin because I wanted something to last and not something flimsy that would rot away in a couple of years. It took me longer to prepare the ground to ensure it was flat and with bricks underneath the posts ( to ensure they last as long as possible) than it was to put together. All the parts slotted together easily and it is a third full already. Nice and big to get lots of compost. Would recommend

Good quality and Easy to assemble Irene Grant on 12 April 2021

Whilst the product took longer to arrive than I would have hoped, it was worth waiting for. It is not cheap compared to competitors' products but very good quality, with not even minor snags. Very quick and easy to assemble due to the design.

Very pleased RHALL on 9 March 2021

Good quality - well made and easy to put together

Q & A

Q: Does it just sit on earth?
A: This product just sits on the earth.
Q: Is there a guarantee against rot on the 500l modular wooden compost bin?
A: The supplier''s reply: "All of our wooden products are made from the best environmentally-sound long-lasting wood we can buy. Being a live material, it will not act uniformly. Even if it is grown in the same forest there will be slight differences in conformity. Further, wood will repay you if it is looked after. It should be placed in a spot where it will not be permanently soaking wet, but where it can dry out thoroughly from time to time. The component type of construction of Gardening Works products offers you an opportunity to turn boards and posts round to even wear and tear. At this time there is an opportunity to retreat with a preservative, say every couple of years. Spare parts are available. Therefore we can, we will, and we do GUARANTEE that whenever you contact us regarding an issue, you will always get a fair hearing and we will always do our very best to put matters right for you and the individual circumstances, however long you have owned the product."
