New Stuff - Stir Up Perfect Compost
Home composting is one of the best ways of recycling organic material, but how many of us manage to get it just right? Darlac's new Compost Aerator/Stirrer is described as the perfect tool for keeping air flowing through your heap. The lift and mix action speeds up the natural biological process while allowing you to check the progress of your free, quality compost without having to empty the bin. All you have to do is push the aerator into the heart of the compost, twist and withdraw. As the tool is pulled from the heap, the hinged flaps open, stirring up the pile and letting the air in. It has a T-shaped handle so it can be used with both hands and is made completely from steel.
