Have you tried it? Any suggestions? I would like to use this method for my late garden. I am excited about it.

I've never heard of it called this, but I think I've done variations before....I'll have to watch YT videos on the subject. Thanks!

One visit to the public library later: Lasgana gardnening is a no till type of garden.
Layer 1: thick pads of newspaper or cardboard
layer 2: peat moss/saw dust
layer 3: grass clippings straw or compost or manure
layers4-??? repeat layers 2-3 until bed is 12-18" tall

You can cover the bed with black plastic to cook for a bit or plant right away. I should also add that it needs to be very wet. I will also plant some flowers. A nice feminine touch!
