Compost Aerator - Uses

  • This clever device can be used with your compost heap or compost bin to
    • Loosen & turn pile
    • Mix composting layers
    • But most crucially to add air to your compost heap
  • Therefore increasing the rate of biological activity
  • Leading to faster break down of your compost heap

Compost Aerator - Advantages

  • Fast & effective way to aerate your compost
  • Prevents pains & aches to wrist & back from traditional turning methods
  • Purpose designed tool
  • Allows you get air right into the centre of your compost pile
  • 'T' handle allows for optimum use
  • Great value compost aerator

Compost Aerator - How to Use

  • Compost aerator should be used once every week
  • Use it after adding additional material to your compost heap
  • Use by pushing the pointed end into compost bin or pile
  • Push in as far as you can & then pull it back out
  • The folding arms will open out & pull back the compost from the centre of the pile
  • This will create air pockets in the compost
  • Continue to do this at spacings of 30cm throughout the compost pile

Compost Aerator - Why Use

  • Compost piles will only decompose & break down once air, water & heat is available
  • Micro organisms such as bacteria work harder & faster in the presence of oxygen
  • If pile is not aerated, the layers sit on top of each other & air is lost
  • This leads to anaerobic conditions and a slow to decompose, smelly compost heap
  • By aerating, we can create aerobic conditions which encourages good bacteria
  • These bacteria break down compost fast & create better quality compost
  • By aerating we can double the rate of decomposition

Arrived promptly, well packaged (possibly too much packaging?) and in good order.
I have tried it out with standard plastic "dalek-type" compost bin and with 2 larger pallet-built bins. Can require a bit of force to insert all the way down to the bottom of the bin and more so to draw it back up.
It looks like the aerator is doing the job it was designed for. Over all I am very happy it.
This is a great gadget for aerating your compost and so easy to use. Well worth the money.
Thank you for the good quality, price and service.
Exactly what I've been looking for.
