Post My new mixed use garden.
Wow! I am the first poster here this year. Thing are moving slow. :drunk

So this may be more of a diary entry perhaps if no one is reading but hey, someones got to post.

More just a starter post than anything. My last lot of garden beds was definitely a learner phase (this link here viewtopic.php?f=80&t=2171 )

This time I am going a different path. My backyard is now sloped, and I am going to build a few things into it to make it a bit different.
These are a dry creek bed going to a storm water pit. Probably a fire pit. Nature play areas for the kids and of course food beds.

I think this time with the food beds I am going to try doing some no dig garden beds as per Morag Gambles design. Basically with layers ending with newspaper and straw on top and away I go.

I just bought a mulcher and have cleared a bunch of stuff crating about 0.3m3 of fine mulch. I am going to go pick up about 1m3 of horse poo on the weekend and plan on getting some ex brewery grains and paper etc.
I am assuming that I am not using too much horse poo in the mix, I want to get some good heat in there and hopefully it will be ready in a few months for some planting while I move onto my house.

I will get some existing photos up soon. Hopefully we can get this site happening again.
