Building a great garden starts with great soil. If you have boring soil, you will have a boring garden. The more life-giving nutrients that you put in your garden, the more productivity you will get back.
We primarily use the back to eden and lasagna method for gardening adding layer upon layer of natural materials over the top of each other. Here are some of the materials we use: shredded leaves, grass clippings, wheat straw, wood chips, rice hulls, compost, equine and rabbit manures.
We also add a few other amendments to give our garden maximum production. Azomite, Epsom Salts, Bat Guano, Rock Phosphate.
