Just installed all by hand this past 2 weekends. Made a T shape with hopes of good microclimates? Thanks to my wife. we are very excited to plant it and mulch it. Central Arkansas with storms coming, I tarped it. Wish us luck. You guys rock and keep me motivated.

Only at Permies do people get motivated by a pile of dirt.

Welcome to permies Jeff!

That is a cool idea!

So you covered it with a tarp? To keep the rain off? Are you worried about it eroding?

I was thinking it might be good to let it get some water?

Thanks everyone. We are under a tornado watch today and expecting lots of rain. So I am concerned my soil will erode with a deluge. I watered it last night gently with a sprinkler. I plan on planting it with started plants inside and casting seeds, them mulching heavily. Hoping for the best.
