Section 3 Garden Construction

This is the third section of our garden. We expanded the garden from 32′ x 64′ to 32′ x 110′.  Here is a brief summary of its composition and pictures from each stage of construction.

Material

We used about 50 yards of double grind wood chip mulch.  We layered it on top of cardboard and newspaper.

Method

We cut the grass and put down a layer of newspaper (which we wetted) and cardboard to block the coastal bermuda (which is nearly impossible to kill).  We then added 9 inches of double grind mulch. We rented a Bobcat for one day which made moving the mulch a breeze compared to wheelbarrows and shovels. We also took advantage of the Bobcat to spread some extra mulch in some low areas in our chicken run.
