how to build a lasagna bed - water absorbent materials
Lasagna garden is a good choice. dig, no-
Until organic gardening methods produce fertile and fluffy soil, there is little work for gardeners.
Making lasagna will produce soil containing microorganisms and your plants will thrive.
Gardeners around the world will benefit from this knowledge.
The result was an increase in yield, a decrease in weeds and a decrease in pests.
Requirements: in order to be able to complete the project, all you need is the ability to bend and use the shovel.
The name "lasagna gardening" has nothing to do with what you plant in this garden.
It refers to the method of building a garden, essentially by adding a layer of organic material that, over time, will "cook" and create a good soil full of life.
The best time to start this garden is autumn, so it will collapse all winter.
The materials you need are: grass crumbs, leaves, fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, tea leaves and tea bags, weeds (
If they don't go to the seed)
Feces, compost, seaweed, broken newspaper or spam, pine needles, flowers, garden decoration, peat moss, cardboard.
One thing is for sure, you will like your lasagna bed and what you planted in it!
This is an important step where you can decide what shape of bed, square or round or whatever you want and then measure it and mark your area.
The previous plan will bring you a nice lasagna bed!
Use a square point shovel to take out the main bumps, hills and fill holes to level the site as much as possible.
Don't worry about grass or weeds, these will be covered up and will not cause problems.
Measure us at your site and mark the size of the bed you want.
Look for materials in your own backyard.
There are a few leaves, grass crumbs, coffee grounds and cardboard.
Something you can't find, you can call and it's delivered.
Compost, straw and feces are a few.
Put down the thick cardboard or newspaper first.
Cardboard will act as the ground cover to prevent weeds from coming out.
It will break down completely and will actually increase your soil!
~ The second layer of time consisting of water-
Water absorbing material (
These are straw, hay crumbs, or bark)About 2 layers-3 inches thick.
The third layer is organic material from 4 to 8 inch.
You will need to build your layers with organic materials like grass crumbs and compost, as this is the layer that will increase the productivity of your thousand-story garden.
Sprinkle some water on the last floor.
This will help to break down the materials you use.
If you're not the height you need, go ahead and layer again
Until the height you need.
If you decide to have more than one lasagna bed, then I suggest you make a good way between them.
Line up on your road with a newspaper or cardboard and buy some pieces of bark.
I love the free products that landscape offers, they are big and rough and work fine.
Shoveling the bark debris onto the path and doing it deep, I would say 4-
5 inch will keep your road dry with no mud.
When you finish layering and the bed reaches the height you want, plant a cover crop on your bed.
This can be a crimson clover or rye.
Wait until spring now.
This gives your lasagna bed time to break down throughout the winter and allow the microbes to do a good job of getting rich, may your new bed be ready for planting!
After harvesting the crops from your lasagna bed, be sure to put it away for the winter.
Pile all your crop residue on your bed, place it under the soil and plant the covered crop.
Next spring, your lasagna bed will be ready for your next season.
Note: Make sure to start at the level.
If your surface is uneven anyway, there may be run-off and erosion on your bed.
Wear gloves to prevent blisters.
The best part is to eat all the delicious organic vegetables from your lasagna bed!
