Sheet Mulching Part 2
The beds we started preparing January 1st are now almost finished. We finally got most of the manure in our driveway down the hill and spread out over sheet mulched beds. It is pretty exciting. Since there are so many eucalyptus trees here and we like to use what we have, the plan is to edge the beds with thick eucalyptus branches to give the garden a more finished look and to keep the beds from shifing too easily. Also, still need to add a layer of compost over the top before planting. It was hard to get a picture of the full design but from overhead the garden beds are two concentric circles with pathways cutting through.
