Building a Hugelkultur Raised Bed

Sheet mulching is a technique of laying organic material in layers on the ground to build up a raised bed of rich soil for your plants. Hugelkultur is an extension of this technique, where a gardener builds quite tall raised beds using logs and dead branches as the first layer in this bed.

Yes, I know one person who lived outside Hot Springs and did hugelkultur quite extensively. In fact, he said his soil was so rocky that the only way to garden is in raised beds.
