I'm gathering materials to start this and am pretty excited about it! I love to garden but have a slipped disc in my neck, so can't garden as I used to. I've got horrible, heavy clay for soil here and gave up this summer on my garden..that stuff is just too hard to work with. So, I found out about lasagna gardening from friends...one on the east coast and one on the west. I've got a big pile of compost and gathered bags of leaves yesterday. There are lots of farms here..so lots of manure, plus free mulch from the city. I want to get the beds going now..and cook them over the winter. What are some of the materials you use in your lasagna garden?
I'm wondering about using computer paper as the bottom layer on some beds...the weed barrier. The book calls for newspaper or cardboard. Have any of you used other papers? I was wondering about shredded paper for a layer too. Thanks a bunch!!!
