After reading and watching a video about wood chip gardening, Guv'nor was convinced we needed to try this method. Watch the video here.
The basic idea is to use a thick layer of fresh hardwood chips on an area of ground. Over time (about a year) the wood chips decompose and turn the ground into a fertile growing area with minimal work.
It took persistence but he finally found a tree company who would deliver wood chips to our property. He marked out an area and spread out the wood chips. He also added some cow and chicken manure and also compost from what we had in our compost bins.
