Outdoor Lasagna Gardening

backyard lasagna gardening

Lasagna gardening is a garden made using one of the easiest organic methods of gardening.┬áLasagna gardening is best for individuals who have busy lives but still love the taste of fresh garden-picked vegetables.┬áContrary to what the name may suggest, lasagna gardening has nothing to do with growing lasagna in a garden. The name actually comes from the way the garden beds are grown with the help of layers, in much the same way as we make layers of ingredients in a pan of lasagna. This method of gardening is often referred to as ‘no-dig gardening’. The method of growing the layers is called sheet composting. In this method, the layers quickly build up soil rich in nutrients, more than in any average garden.┬áLasagna gardening is environment-friendly, as it uses your household waste. It’s also easier for the gardener, because there is no removing of sods and weeds, no digging, and most importantly, you do not have to soil it. The first layer is of brown, corrugated cardboard, or 3 to 4 layers of newspaper, put directly on the top of the grass or weed. Make sure to wet the layer before putting up the layer of newspaper. Watering the layer attracts the earthworms that will loosen the soil.
