Composters and Raised Garden Beds

Episode: 4
Title: Composters and Raised Garden Beds from Alliance Industries
Broadcast: 26th September 2015
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane

This story shows Trevor introducing a new product that helps make gardening success easier by reducing greenwaste and utilizing kitchen scraps to make great compost which is brilliant for plant health and reducing watering in your garden.

  • The Alliance Industries compost bin is a locally designed composting system that looks great and works exceptionally well. It comes in two sizes – a larger garden 360 litre bin and a smaller 220 litre bin.
  • The bin is solid, made from a food grade UV stabilized plastic that is durable and the design ensures you can continually add to the bin as it breaks down. It’s an aerobic composter meaning you just need to roll it a few times daily to keep the mix full of air which encourages a special type of composting bacteria to proliferate and become a brilliant compost in about 4 weeks.
  • It is also a sealable unit, once you’ve added materials to it you simply screw the lid on and that means there will be no pests when you come to collect your garden gold. The dual chambers allows you to start a new batch whilst the first batch is breaking down which is a great way to get a continuous supply of compost.
  • A typical household should collect around 60 to 90 litres of compost every 6 weeks. A bag of compost at the garden centre will set you back about $12 or more so every 6 weeks you are getting a $36 return on your investment as well as reducing waste and improving the health of your garden.
  • Raised garden beds are a cost effective way to lift the vegies to a height that makes gardening a lot easier on the back.
  • Set up is simple and that great compost from the compost bins is the ideal growing soil for vegies in raised garden beds.
  • These recycled great looking garden beds are UV stabilized and incredibly durable which mean no rusting.
  • Your local Waldecks garden centre is teaming with stunning quality plants and innovative garden products this springtime so take some time out to relax in one of their 4 stores across the Perth metro area and by mentioning the Garden Gurus and Trev sent you, they’ll give you 10% off your purchases for that day!
