sorry you failed in your first attempt at hugelkultur.

Why did you allow bermuda grass to overgrow your hugelkultur bed?
How did you allow bermuda grass to overgrow your hugelkultur bed?
How did this overgrowth actually cause it to fall?
Please post pictures of your fallen hugelkultur bed so we can diagnose your failed building technique.
Are those corrugated galvanized pipes??? Please google how handlers of galvanized pipe must wear gloves or they get galvanized poisoning....please also see the precautions welders of galvanized pipe must take. Look up the MSDS on galvanized pipe....do you really want to grow your food in this???
