Here is the area in front that I also am turning into a lasagna garden, like the south facing garden.
Also quite big.
When I needed organic matter for this garden I went to Starbucks for coffee grounds. Their normal summer program was over but the managers at two locations were easy going and gave me what they had in their bins as long as I did not mind that the filters were mixed in, which of course I did not.
Before, with grass.
After, (with grass clippings).
The amount of grass clippings you see on the far right is from my father`s 75` x 120` lot which I think helps to put into perspective just how much plant matter I needed.
To finish it off I spread a soil & compost mix on top and then the snow came, so hopefully it is all brewing as I type.
Not that I do not like winter. I do.
But I am excited for spring already so I can see the results of this grand experiment.
