Clearing the site for our home we created some huge hugels. They now absorb all the site runoff and only took a few hours to pile while the machinery was there. Soil came from the excavation. Hugelkultur should be written into new building codes. Compare this to the dinky little black fences put up for erosion control.

That's cool! When did you build that hugel raised bed? Any plans on what you will plant on it?
