|I love the way your garden is designed and planted. The lasagna method is a great way to achieve this. Instead of digging, you learn to raid dumpsters for cardboard! Or, I have asked the local hardware stores who sell refigierators for dibbs on the cardboard containers their refrigerators come in. I shred junk mail and put it under the cardboard. I am always short on mulch though. Im looking for tree cutters with a chipper. I did find a ready source of stepping stones--I found a dump of cracked up concrete. The pieces are just right for making a rustic path--and handling the concrete pieces gives you a total body work out besides!|

We were lucky with cardboard ,the kitchen was just remodles and cupboards came packed in big boxes.

|When world gives you lemons, make lemonade! When the world gives you cardboard, make a lasagna garden!|

|I did a large garden like this a number of years ago. I DID lift sod just to give the garden a clean edge but not at all under most of it. (Nor did I dig out all the violets in the lawn). I used thick layers of newspaper. There are pictures at: http://violaann.smugmug.com/Ga...|
