Mix wood for garden beds & alpaca compost or plain horse poop
I am new here, and to gardening. We are try to practice organic and holistic life. And, for the first time I have space to garden, since we are moving to a new home, yeee.
Some people here mentioned they go to Home Depot and use 70% off culled wood to make garden beds.
I went to look at Home Depot, but they had mixed wood planks, while I here everyone talking about cedar wood here. Can I use mixed wood or is it the same thing or it doesn't matter?
Secondly I looked on craigslist and found a guy selling alpaca poop compost, in another post he mentioned it to be organic. Since the rest of the post was same just the title different I would say it's not organic particularly.
Alpaca poop compost, is it good bad or doesn't matter?
While other people on craigslist are giving away horse poop, and say you should put this under the raised bed when you dig the first layer on ground, so when the plant roots reach there it's most likely "composted" and they get nutrition boost.
Has anyone one practiced this?
Thanks ya'll. I am so glad I found this forum.
