Thanks Nick. Hope the termites help us. That would be very "permie" of them. We have lots of anteaters and kangaroos too. Dont know if they will be in a permie mood tho. Haha.

The land is fairly flat and there is no water movement. We only bought the land at the end of the last wet season but we have been watching it for a while. Where the beds are going will end in a big dam to take most of the still water and store it all together in a smaller area. There is a slight enough dip to do this. The beds will just steer it a little (hopefully).

Thanks for the advice, holidays are coming up and i want to get started before the wet season comes again.

Hi Mark

Hope you survive the 40degrees tomorrow. Up here in the tropics (west of Cairns) we will have a pleasant 35 degrees.

We live in the "wilds". Its exciting and challenging and we love it.

Good luck with your future projects.

Can someone help me with a bit of info please.....

I live in tropical Australia (up the top) with very dry dry seasons and wet wet seasons. We have very thin (5mm) "plasterers scree" soil and no grass.. Just seca stylo left to go feral for 25 years and tea trees.

Do termites wreck a hugelkultur bed? We have lots of termite mounds.

Do I need to bring soil in to make it useable faster? If we leave it bare too long the snakes move in and the rain washes the wood bare...or will just a bit of our sandy soil do?

Can i build it north/south?...... It is better for drainage into the dam and stopping water from just sitting on the ground for 2 months.

Please help if you can ...we are all alone here and can't get much info. Thanks.
