We're now ready for business. I've got two horse radish plants that I think I'm going to put in here along with ginger I know some of y'all were following me when I was planting those Ginger buds but uh did you expect this and there we go all done.

An Introduction of the method used in filling the raised bed in the video: hugelkultur

The word hugelkultur translates into "mound culture," which is an apt name for this process because hugelkultur gardens are essentially raised beds that are made of a mound of logs and branches topped with compost, soil, and other natural materials. Hugelkultur is the process of making raised garden beds filled with rotten wood. The result is a low-maintenance garden that doesn't require irrigation or fertilization. Hugelkultur beds have naturally good drainage and produce incredibly rich, fertile soil that retains moisture. It's also a great way to upcycle woody debris. Hugelkultur is often utilized in permaculture systems and even works in the desert.

Why choose hugelkultur Method

Whether you grow ornamental or edible gardens, hugelkultur can improve your gardening experience in a number of different ways.

1.Less waste. Instead of tossing yard waste, like fallen branches and autumn leaves in the trash, the hugelkultur gardening method repurposes these natural materials and reduces the waste output of your home.

2.Less watering. As the materials inside the hugelkultur mound decompose, they will naturally hold water like a sponge, reducing how much you'll need to water your plants as time goes by.

3.Less fertilizer. As the natural materials in a hugelkultur bed break down, they release nutrients into the soil, reducing how much extra fertilizer you'll need to apply.

4.More ergonomic. Like other raised bed gardens, hugelkultur beds are built above the ground so you won't need to bend over as far to tend them. This can be useful for preventing back strain and achy joints.

5.Longer growing season. As the sticks, leaves, and logs that are used to build hugelkultur raised beds decompose, they naturally generate heat. This causes soil to warm up a bit faster in spring and it may extend your growing season by a few weeks.

6.Supports heavy feeding plants. Pumpkins, squash, and melons can be quite demanding plants, but they will have all the nutrients they need when grown in the rich soil of a hugelkultur bed.

7.Good for gardens with poor soil. Gardens with that are rich in clay or sandy soil can be tricky to grow plants in. But hugelkultur beds are built on top of existing soil, allowing you to grow a garden even if you have very poor soil.

8.Small space friendly. You can grow on top and on the sides of hugelkultur mounds, so you can pack even more plants into a limited growing space.

9.No tilling needed. As the materials in hugelkultur beds degrade, air pockets open up in the soil, which can naturally aerate the soil without any need for tilling.
