What is Lasagna Composting Method?
The Lasagna Composting Method is a compost/sheet layering method of gardening that is designed to create better soil. This method involves layering organic materials such as leaves, grass clippings, and kitchen scraps in a way that mimics how compost forms naturally. The main appeal of this method is that it requires less effort and energy compared to traditional composting techniques.
How long does it take to prepare?
One thing to note about the Lasagna Composting Method is that it may take six to twelve months to prepare your garden bed using this method. While it may seem like a long time, the end results are certainly worth the wait. The nutrient-rich soil produced from this composting method can greatly enhance the health and growth of your plants. Plus, the fall season is a great time to get started with lasagna gardening. You can utilize the fallen leaves and other organic materials that are abundant during this season.
Did you know that there’s an upcoming event where you can learn more about this composting method?
