The Tumbleweed Compost Tumbler

Are you looking for a well-made, medium capacity compost tumbler for backyard composting?  The Tumbleweed Compost Tumbler is the answer.  Just think of all the beautiful flowers and vegetables you will be able to grow with the rich, organic compost made with your very own Tumbleweed Compost Tumbler.

The Tumbleweed Compost Tumbler is a free-standing tumbling compost bin. Air and moisture are distributed by the tumbling action ensuring the ideal conditions for rapid decomposition.

The Tumbleweed’s unique compost bin rotates effortlessly on its axis, and the contents fall from the top to the botton of the bin as it is rotated. The breaker bar across the middle of the bin helps break up clumped organic matter as it falls past.

Simply add your organic waste to the tumbler on a regular basis and give the barrel a couple of spins to ensure proper mixing of the organic materials. No more turning your compost with a pitch fork or following complicated layering techniques.

With a few spins each day and the right mix of organic matter, you can end up with dark, rich, organic compost in as little as 21 days. Composting time is dependent upon the mix of materials, moisture content of the compost, weather, etc.

For best result, use approximately 75% dry ingredients (shredded newspaper, grass clippings, leaves) and 25% moist waste (dead flowers, vegetables scraps). The Tumbleweed will work with any blend of organic material, but the process may take longer to complete. Remember, a well-aerated bin (daily spinning) helps break down materials into ready compost faster.
