If yo want to learn more there are ton of great web sites on Google that will be more detailed and helpful. Just Google Lasagna Gardening Technique.

HowdiniGuru says:

cont…
Layer several inches of organic material on top of the peat moss.
Continue 2 alternate layers of peat moss and organic material, until desired thickness is reached.
Water until the garden is the consistency of a damp sponge.
Plant and mulch.

HowdiniGuru says:

There’s no hard and fast rules about what 2 use 4 your layers, just so long as it’s organic and doesn’t contain any protein (fat, meat, or bone).
Don’t remove the sod or do any extra work, like removing weeds or rocks.
Mark the area for your garden a long rope 2 get the desired shape.
Cover the area w/ wet newspapers, (5 or more sheets per layer).
Cover the paper w/ 1-2in of peat moss or other organic material.

David Daniels says:

I didnt quite understand the “lasagna” technique? Do you place the newspaper and mulch then wait a couple weeks for it to die? Then plant the seed into the dead grass underneath the mulch? Please elaborate.

Great video otherwise!!

HowdiniGuru says:

LOL! Glad to help out, but don’t go and start getting us in trouble w/ your better half! 😉

HowdiniGuru says:

You can probably take what you have learned now and start something small.

Great video. I told my better half to stop stepping on the soil after turning it, now I can prove it. Some very good ideas here, thanks.

I’m educating myself as a teen, so when I’m older I can grow my own organic garden. (^_^)

HowdiniGuru says:

Yes that should be ok. If you do use this, come back and let us know how it worked out for you. 🙂

astar4all says:

great video!! is it ok to use pine leaves instead of using mulch to keep the weeds from growing in the garden?

Very good tips, thanks for this video. The ‘lasagne’ method sounds a good option for people with back aches :-).

i agree, organic does taste a whole lot better

wabecco says:

How about we search the definition of organic… Any garden is organic.
And the source of the majority of food is organic. Stick to the word ‘fresh’.

MyVisna says:

Nice! Let me know what you think of my organic fertilizing mulch formula.
