Lasagna Gardening???

What is lasagna gardening? Really it is a way of gardening that uses layers of material to stop weeds and enrich the soil.

Here is a better picture of what I am trying to do with lasagna gardening it is really something I am doing to help my back and reduce the stress from weeding. My layers are different but you get the idea.




The no-work garden: Leave the sod where it lies, blanket it with wet newspaper to stifle the grass, then begin layering. Before you can say ngiamo, your plot is ready for planting.


Look it up on google if you are interested in this technique... it really does work but it requires some patience and follow through. No chemicals are needed and I really like that!
