Hugelkultur lasagne

I’ve begun making my new hugelkultur bed.

A layer of sticks for the base:

Over that, a layer of mulched-up green stuff, mainly lemon balm which needed a good cut back:

Then a layer of leaf litter, raked from the walking tracks in the bush:

I’ll keep building it up in this way. If I don’t have green mulched material, I’ll use the grass clippings I get every 2 weeks from a friend’s garden. I’ll water the bed with the liquid from the composting toilet. This will add extra nitrogen to help the breakdown of the woody material.
