This is regular size garbage can with lid. In the summer I use it to make fertilizer tea. It sits along the fence on the east side of the garden. (Where I can reach it with a garden hose to fill with water.) The "sticks" use see surrounding it are raspberry canes. Many are 5' tall.
As of this last snow storm, there isn't even a bump in the snow to show where the lid of the garbage can is.
