Beds and pathsJan Feb and March 2017

Over the past three months we have been realigning beds and renewing the wood chip paths, this is a big project so far we have done some of the paths in the Walled Garden and some in the field garden. The beds are 120cm wide with 40cm paths, the paths are dug out and filled with wood chip. The idea is that the surface of the woodcchip which dries off in the wind is relatively inhospitable to weed seeds but the woodchip is also deep enough to create a composting effect providing a moisture retaining band by each bed as well as longterm carbon in the soil. we shall see!
