So you want a new landscape bed, but dread stripping the sod or digging up the existing weeds in a large area? Don’t turn to diesel fuel or Roundup to kill the existing grass or weeds, do it organically by making lasagna mulch!
Making a Lasagna Landscape Bed
Making lasagna mulch, also known as sheet mulching, “is a gardening technique that suppresses weeds and builds fertile soil. In sheet mulching, thick layers of organic matter are placed on the ground like layers in a lasagna. These layers are then left to decompose, ultimately creating a rich planting medium (compost) that is terrific for vegetable gardens and ornamental planting beds… The mulch will settle at soil level after decomposition.”
