In recent years the term lasagna gardening has become a wildly popular catch phrase in the online gardening community,air jordan pas cher. Promising simple and easy construction with very little work. But is it really a viable option for homeowners who want to start their own victory garden this year? For those unfamiliar with lasagna gardening it is described as the layering of organic materials such as leaves and grass, shredded paper and vegetable scraps. The theory is that as the material breaks down it creates rich fluffy soil for your garden without any work.
There is a never ending supply of new ways that promise easier and faster ways to yield results. The basic fact that nature works on her own design continues to elude some of the best intentioned. I have been writing for years that gardening is a process, not an event.
I am not a person that is easily distracted by passing fads. I am an organic gardener at heart for the simple reason it is the way of nature. I view every new idea for gardening with a dubious and skeptical eye. When you are working in harmony with nature you can t help but be successful. Conversely, when you try to circumvent the process you are doomed to failure,abercrombie france.
The classic example is the gardener who is obsessed with growing tomatoes. He wants the biggest, brightest fruit in the shortest amount of time so he decides to use a synthetic chemical to force the plant to mature at an unnatural speed. Yes, they can get some incredible results. Sometimes,moncler outlet. The only thing miracle like with these chemicals is that people continue to be suckered by all the deceptive marketing and pretty packaging. Unfortunately, there is precious little thought about all the chemicals that plant has absorbed and how much of it we are ingesting. Do NOT tell me that you care about the environment when you are using toxic chemicals,louboutin pas cher See The Difference Between Before And After. The cumulative effect of consuming food that is laced with toxins is evidenced today in most peoples health.
My experience watching others who have jumped into this fad has been entertaining at times and has provided numerous teaching moments. What I typically see is a homeowner who has essentially built an anaerobic compost pile that stinks and everything planted just rots right along with it. While there is merit in using shredded organic materials around plantings in your raised bed gardens to control weeds and converse moisture, it is folly to think that you can plant in this media with any degree of success. It is true that all these layers will decompose and contribute to the fertility of the soil,louboutin, but they do NOT create soil in and of itself,air jordan.
Fertile soil is a complex structure of humis, organic matter and an array of minerals. It is comprised of natural elements such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. It also contains diverse populations of micro organisms such as protozoa,louboutin Mother selling newspapers for female university di,moncler,air jordan Knocked dead husbands car accident instantly pushed his wife _ News _, fungi,louboutin pas cher, bacteria, nematodes and earthworms. This is not going to be replaced by the layered or lasagna method, no matter how well intentioned.
A better approach to gardening is the raised bed method that is constructed directly on the ground and filled with a correct soil mixture with a pH level balanced correctly for the intended crop. Then use only one layer of shredded paper or grass around your plantings. Now if you have been planning on building a lasagna garden this year and have been saving newspapers and cardboard, use them in your new compost pile instead. Next season you can mix it all in with your existing raised beds to increase the nutrient and organic matter levels. The bottom line? I recommend sticking with methods that are tried and true and save the lasagna experiments for Garfield,air jordan.
