The Hugelkultur

Tips build in the summer and fall, or, anytime, but it is nice if you have time for it to settle, and, in case you don;t have quite enough materials for the top, to keep adding to it and let it all mature during the wintertime. Dig out at least 1 foot, lay out WELL with big logs and then layer the branches and twigs tight, the sod you dug up may not be enough – make sure you have straw, compost, chicken coop litter ready. Point being, in order for the water saving to work, you got to have the wood in there !!!! duh. ­čÖé
