              No Dig Garden Bed Method

              Are you short on space for new plants? Are you dreading digging a new bed? Are you contemplating spraying grass killer? If you have 8 months to a year before you need to plant use this organic, No Dig Method!

              Materials Needed:
              Thick cardboard (such as a box) enough to cover your new bed
              Manure – enough for a depth of 1 to 2 inches
              Mulch – enough for a depth of 2 to 3 inches
              Newspaper - optional (No Slicks)

              Lay the cardboard over the area you want to be your new garden bed.  Make sure the entire area is fully covered.  If you have a few gaps then take folded newspaper (needs to be a thick section) and cover the gaps (remove any slick pages).  Then cover with an inch of pasteurized manure. Then top with two to three inches of Mulch.  Now comes the great part – RELAX.  

              The cardboard along with the manure and mulch block all light and will kill any weeds or grass trapped below.  The cardboard will gradually break down over the next 8 months to year with the manure mixing in leaving you a nice healthy bed to plant in.
