How we made our sheet-mulch gardens

First we marked out and dug from path to bed, getting both dead level to slow and soak rain water, then edgebanked the bed with soil again to retain water, before banging in stakes around the edge.

Next comes soaked cardboard overlapping by at least ten centimetres to halt cooch grass seed and root growth.

Then we added nitrogen in the form of cow manure and cow urine.

And carbon in the form of wood chips.
