Build A Layered Garden Bed For No More Digging, Less Watering and Less Weeding

A lot of folks dread the gardening because of all the digging to get started. With this layered garden you won’t need to be digging and you will do a lot less weeding and watering as well. If you make it a raised garden with a box frame surrounding it will warm up a lot sooner too. The layers consist of blood meal and bone meal, alfalfa hay, straw, newspaper and compost.

The blood meal provides nitrogen and the bone meal provide phosphorus which helps the straw and hay breakdown and provide nutrients to your plants. Another bonus to a layered garden is that once the plants are well established you will not need to do nearly as much watering as a regular garden takes. So you make your box frame add all the layers in the amounts listed and not only did you do no digging but you will do far less weeding and less watering.

You will have a great garden because all of the layers will be breaking sown under the plants and feeding them. This instructions for how to build a layered garden are from Rodales’ Organic Life.
