Assessing the cardboard stash.

Not even halfway through the stash, but I’m not sure I have enough even so. But it’s a start. One of the benefits of moving to a new place: lots of material to reuse.

      It’s going to be a mix of lasagna and “let’s see how this goes…” At our last house I was fortunate enough to have the time (and the proper season) to dig down 30″ and aerate, add compost, and remove every last grass root and weed sprout I could find. One quick attempt at doing the same here and I was reminded it’s August, the ground is concrete and water restrictions would seriously frown upon the soaking required to dig any depth, and in a good week I might get twenty minutes, twice, to work on it. Garden experiments are some of my favorite kinds 🙂

        me,too:-) I learn from making mistakes + often those mistakes turn out to be “great ideas”….I bet for you,too:-)
        I don’t dig down anymore, I use newspaper and cardboard to build my beds now…lasagna is the only way to go:-). I bet by building up,you will have a better chance to not use as much water in the future-how exciting! I don’t have anymore places for garden beds-lol..I have used all my space…but will be fun reading about your new beds-Happy Gardening:-)
