The challenge is that the evil pervasive carpet of bermuda grass is EVERYWHERE except where I've dug or mulched and in those areas I have to be vigilant and keep cutting the edges to stop it from creeping back in. THANK YOU for telling me about Back to Eden. Recently I've been giving a lot of thought to food forest concepts and actually feeling closer to god when I'm in my gardens, than I ever felt in church or in the bible. This guy makes god real. And of course reinforces the value of woodchips -hooray! My experience so far has simply been for weed suppression in existing beds and paths, but of course after two years I'm finding inches of black gold so I'm scraping up my paths to use the compost in the gardens and applying fresh chips. It had not occurred to me to actually use the chips in my garden - duuh! I absolutely love this video and will watch it many times for continued inspiration :thumbup
