Yimby Tumbler Garden Composter
The Yimby Tumbler Garden Composter
Composting is an important part of gardening as it creates a natural and nutrient rich fertilizer which helps plants grow to their full potential.
It is also the perfect way of getting rid of garden and kitchen waste instead of sending it to the landfill site.
The fertilizer created is cheaper as well as a better quality than shop bought fertilizer which can be full of chemicals.
A Yimby Tumbler Garden Composter would be a great addition to any garden as it completes this task quickly and efficiently.
Made from recycled plastic on a sturdy steel frame this composter features a barrel with two chambers meaning you can have two lots of compost on the go at once; perhaps at different stages.
It has built in hand holds to make it easy to turn. In fact, the main advantage of a tumbler composter in comparison to a compost bin is the fact you can easily mix the compost by simply spinning the barrel a few times a week.
As the composter is sealed this will not only reduce any escaping odours but makes it completely rodent proof. It has a 37 gallon capacity so has plenty of space for all your gardening needs.
One big benefit of the Yimby Tumbler Composter is the fact it reduces the amount of time needs to create your compost.
This is due to the added heat produced from being sealed and the extra aeration produced from the spinning process and adjustable air vents.

It could not be easier to use. There is no handle to crank as you simply place your hands in the indents on the side and spin.
When you need to empty the composter just pop a wheelbarrow underneath, spin it upside down and release the compost.
If you only need to empty one side, a good tip is to lay newspaper across the opening on the other side so that doesn’t fall out accidentally.
For the best results, leave your tumbler composter in a sunny place as the warmer it gets, the quicker the contents inside will ‘cook’.
