Soil Building and Mulch: sheet mulching

Look who got a gingko bilboa 'autumn gold' !!!

The first big step in converting the "dead strip" or parking strip into a planted area was to select a tree. We called urban forestry for the planting approval and the rest of the fall and winter will be spent amending the soil in the area.
Everywhere you look - we are making more lasagna beds! Some people call this sheet composting.
