That is my usual cheapest method but not fastest.
Have you got great & immediate results using this method ?

This will give some good microbes the chance to establish under the sacks and hold moisture in place. I would not bother trying to dig the area, just where you want to plant the seeds.
Water the first few times with water then make a tea and use that, (to really boost the microbes use tea once a month and maybe one or two waterings with mushroom slurry.

On the topic of easy/cheap/maybe better than nothing, has anyone tried collecting the left over charred remains of beach bon-fires to throw in the compost as "lazy person's biochar"?
