Making composting easy

Composting is an essential gardening task if you want to save money and use up all the gardening clippings and prunings you get from good garden maintenance. To make it super easy, invest in a ready to use composter that you simply put somewhere and start filling. By using a combination of green materials and brown materials like dried leaves and branches with some kitchen scraps, you can make your own compost in as little as 6 weeks.

Holt has readymade composters to suit any family. The 220-Litre Compost Converter is made from recycled materials and is tough and durable. It has a waterproof lid and a wide side hatch for quick access to compost. The green colour blends perfectly into any garden environment.

Get hauling!

Here’s a garden goodie that will make your life so much easier. Gorilla Garden Carts get even the toughest jobs done with a minimum of effort, filling the role of a wheelbarrow and so much more.

Designed in the USA, Gorilla Garden Carts are made with a powder-coated steel frame supporting a durable, tough, no-maintenance poly tub to withstand even the most daunting garden job. Large, pneumatic wheels distribute the weight effectively so that the cart doesn’t dig into the lawn or gravel driveway and makes it easy to pull. The wheels are also placed on a wide base for extra stability with a heavy load.

Other standout features are the quick-release dumping feature that allows you to tip out soil or compost easily, and the highly manoeuvrable steering.

The Gorilla Cart is available in two sizes, Medium and Large. The Medium model has a 115L/270kg load capacity and 25cm-diameter wheels. The Large model can haul 200L/540kg and has 33cmdiameter wheels. The Large model also has a patented 2-in-1 handle that allows this cart to be towed behind a lawn tractor or ATV or pulled easily by hand.
