After doing 2 lasagne beds (lucernce, compost, chook poo, sugar cane mulch layers), and reading a bit on BLF, I decided to try a Hugelkultur one for my 3rd bed. This was actual really just a process of consolidating my broken branches and sticks pile with my old grass clippings, ends of old flower pots and pulled-out weeds pile.
I started with layering down some cardboard to minimise weeds (probably don't need this in traditional Hugelkultur but figured can't hurt.
Then I piled the branches and twigs (don't have logs, should just been it will decompose quicker?)
Heaped with grass clippings, compost and chook poo
Covered with sugar cane mulch. Voila, woman-made turkey mound... let's see how it goes. I guess it's really more of a heaped compost heap though theoretically not turning it?
Does this even count as hugelkultur?
