Backyard Compost Thermometer

The backyard compost thermometer is perfectly designed for the home composter. It has basic composting instructions printed on the back of the package, temperature ranges on the dial face, and a durable 20" stem that will reach the center of most "backyard sized" compost piles.

Why does a thermometer make it so easy?

Because temperature is the silver bullet in building and maintaining a successful compost pile. With a basic understanding of the temperature at the center of a compost pile you will know:

1.    When to turn a pile
2.    When to add more material
3.    When to water
4.    When your compost is done.

Backyard Moisture Meter

Our Backyard Moisture Meter gives you a relative "wetter than" or "dryer than" reading. It will NOT give you a percent moisture. The backyard moisture meter has a shorter stem then our long stem moisture meter. It is intended for smaller compost piles, gardening, or for checking the moisture of your lawn. This model does not have a "t-handle" but with a shorter stem you really don't need one. It uses the same technology as our long stem model.

The meter must first be calibrated by taking a sample of your compost or soil and adding water to the sample until it's at your "ideal" moisture level. Then you must adjust the calibration screw on the back of the dial until it reaches "5" on the 0-10 scale. Now that your meter is calibrated, when you come back again to check your compost or soil you'll know if it's too dry or too wet. If the reading is above "5" it's too wet, if it's below "5" it's too dry.

The meter uses conductivity, which is sensitive to changing salts content. The salts content of compost often varies from location to location, making a consistent reading sometime hard to achieve. The meter is intended to give you a good idea of whether or not the center of your pile is too dry or too wet without having to dig deep into the pile for a "squeeze test".
