While researching compost, I ran into the topic of cardboard mulching. It seems like a great idea. Fairly good weed block. Adds organic matter. Relatively easy to source. No more tilling.
I did not till the garden last year and soil is pretty compacted. I also have a lot of clay. I was going to add compost to improve the soil, however, now with this new direction with cardboard mulching I have some questions. Should I till before I lay down the cardboard? Should I till any compost into the soil or just lay down cardboard and top it with compost?
