Hugelkultur Bio Intense Concepts: I am building & filling a sunk in hugelkultur flat or raised beds for growing vegetables.
I will add the walls later but for now we are starting by digging down 16 inches and later depending on how high the pile gets we’ll put up sides to hold it all in. So for now its a flat bed but but eventually it will be a raised bed.
Note: This style of gardening will require nitrogen to be added to the soil in the first year of planting as the many layers of organic matter decompose under the soil. After the first year the organic matter will release nitrogen and absorb and hold water like a sponge making the bed somewhat self watering.
