Hi fellow gardeners, I'm looking into trying lasagna bed's, does anyone have knowledge about this? if so please share, it sounds like a lot less work and a interesting way to do composting. Please help floridagirl.

That's how I made my vegetable garden last year. I have a blog under my profile and a post found here http://my.gardenguides.com/forums/topic/51761?page _no=2

Hope this helps

You're right, flagirl. It's a lot less work and mine is a lot more fertile. The only thing I'd caution you about is ensuring it gets sufficient moisture to break the various layers down into usable soil. I put too much straw on part of mine and had to add more compost and manure and wait another year for the straw to break down.

Thanks guy's, I'll check out those links you posted, hopefully I'll have enough compost and hay with chicken manure in it to do all 3 sections of my veggie garden. My motto is to work smart and not hard, this looks like it would be a very smart way to garden. floridagirl.
