We use all organic fertilizers and treatment methods:
We primarily control weeds through the combined use of drip irrigation, layers of newspaper and a thick layer of mulch. It hasn't always been easy supplying our voracious need for newspaper.
In the past we have upon occasion been scolded for our ‘dumpster diving’ in our desperate attempt to collect enough newspaper.
Over the years we have added some practices & techniques to our repertoire.
Our carpentry lasts a long time because we are careful about how we construct it, which includes using a non-toxic wood preservative on any lumber that may come into contact with soil and on fence posts, etc.
More ways how we do it!
