My 1st attempt at building a Hugelkultur bed after much reading. Since there is “old” thick oak branches from last year’s clean-up, why not try using them, right? So made a mini wall on the slope & filled the space with those old branches, then slowly filled with composted manure, topsoil and some dried oak leaves.
Then I decided to insert some pipes which had holes drilled in them to help with watering and maybe even use to put up a trellis.
Yes, use the space in the hollow concrete bricks as growing spaces as well.
Keep filling – topsoil, compost, dried leaves – layer by layer.
Watering and letting it settle, then watering again …
OK, it’s been a week of waiting, lets try planting something ~ anything.
