Hugelkultur Beds

When it comes to gardening, I have a black thumb. But every year I try as I might to garden again. Last year I tried mixing some wood and branches into my square boxes inspired from the hugelkultur bed design. This seemed to have a positive effect on my garden and helped it retain water better.

So this year, I’m at it again, but on a bigger scale.


8 feet by 4 feet wide by 3 feet deep pit for wood.


All the logs put in the pit. About 4 feet tall.


I’ve since put dirt on it and am now in the process of putting compost on it. Once I get the new pictures on my computer I’ll update this post on how this endeavor is going.
