First off the Good news! Saturday I took the day and prepared my main garden area for my Lasagna Garden. I am so excited! This is really an experiment for me this year so I hope it works! . I am too lazy to pull weeds, but I really want to be a successful gardener so this is a good solution I found! If you are interested, the link above has some great info on how to do it. Here is what I did Saturday. It is lucky that I got any pictures since I am the worst at remembering to take pictures when I do projects. As I was in the middle of the process I remembered I should take pictures, but I did not feel like going into the house to locate my camera, but then I remembered that my phone was in my pocket so I took some pics with that. So the quality is not that great.
So first of all I am creating a U shaped raised bed garden on the south side of my house between the side of my house and the fence. I am using some big rocks that we already had just sitting there serving no purpose to be my inside border. My plan is to be able to walk down the middle and have easy access to the 3 areas. I lay ed down newspaper layers first and sprayed them down with water. The newspaper smothers weeds and prevents new ones from coming up and the newspaper will eventually decompose into the ground.
Next I layed down a layer of peat moss.
kiddie pool garden level to something a little more advanced, but yet still an easier option then the traditional.
So now to the sad and bad news we have had lately and that was the source of a lot of stress this last weekend.
