Recycled Plastic Lumber – The Best Substitute!

Recycled plastic lumber is by far the best eco-friendly substitute over traditional building materials. It is produced entirely of unwanted and waste plastics and most exclusively made from 100% british recycled plastic. If we are going to put the uses of this material in perspective then we are going to have to have a long debate, not only over why this material is by far better for the environment, but more so because this material has a wide variety of advantages that help in proving it is a sustainable material. Recycled Plastic lumber is what it is, a recycled substitute to normal plastic only it can differentiate itself because it is sustainable and eco-friendly. Help improve the environment by purchasing recycled plastic lumber for your next building project and without a shadow of a doubt make recycled plastic wood your first choice!

The Composting Craze!!!
Over the last few years composting has become a big thing, gardeners all over the world have taken up composting for themselves and all playing a part in reducing our need to thow stuff in the rubbish bin.

There are many benefits to your garden growing by using home-made compost, such as:

  • Increased nutrients.
  • Decreases their susceptibility to pests and disease.
  • Water retention is more evenly balanced within the soil.
  • The structure of the soil is improved.

So the first thing to do, is get yourself a compost tumbler or a compost bin. A tumbler is the fastest at producing compost and the usual turnaround with Kedels ‘the dark destoyer’ compost tumbler is about 4-5 weeks. Now what to put in it.

Good things to add to the compost bin.

  • Garden plant remains
  • Old flowers 
  • Fruit and vegetable leftovers 
  • Nutshells 
  • Coffee and tea grounds 
  • Crushed egg shells 
  • Small branches and twigs
  • Untreated saw dust
  • Grass clippings 
  • Weeds

Avoid adding the following:

  • Pet or human waste
  • Bones
  • Fatty foods
  • Meats
  • Dairy products
  • Thick branches
  • Diseased plants
  • Fish

Make sure you provide the mix with the best possible conditions, so that you get your produce in optimal time.

  1. Rotate the drum daily to aerate the mulch inside the drum.
  2. Add water, moisten but don’t overdo it. Consistency is the key here.  The moisture inside the mix should be around 50%, similar to that of damp clothes.
  3. Add many small manageable sizes of materials (small twigs and not large branches!!)

Composting can be great fun. With a good rotating compost bin, you’ll be making compost in no time.
