Want to do some raised beds and have brazillian peppers and carrotwood trees around. Also have a large mimosa stump I would like to cover. Are thes woods okay or are there problems with them. Look forward to hearing from the experts on here, this site rocks.

We are just started trialing hugelkultur beds with brazillian pepper. Brazillian pepper is allelopathic, but I am not sure how bad it will affect the other crops. Using them as a border may have no strong consequences, but there is only one way to try... Trial! However, DO NOT use the stumps, as they will re-sprout.

If our trial hugel beds work, we will be doing a 2 acre area of hugelkultur beds to eliminate plastics for irrigation.

Good luck

Thanks Jason, look forward to hearing how you make out. Guess no one else has used them.
