Lasagna Gardening | The Green Guerrilla


Lasagna gardening (also called sheet mulching) is a method of making soil and compost by building up layers of organic materials. It is often used for turning a grassy or weedy area into a nutrient rich garden space. The essential idea behind lasagna gardening is the layering of several types of organic materials such as food waste, manure, grass clippings, compost, dried leaves, mulch, etc., right where you plan to plant your garden. There are many variations of this method out there, but they will all get you to essentially the same place – a garden bed filled with nutrient rich compost, that retains moisture and suppresses the growth of weeds underneath.
