I'm not sure if this has been discussed here on a previous post.... but here is my question..
Beginning the mound , it seems that it always starts on flat ground. Why is is the ground not excavated maybe a meter deep into the soil and then packed with the trees etc. Will you not get the same result with a lower mound? But the same height in volume with it being just a meter or more maybe below ground level and a meter or so above ground?
