Comments On - How to Create a Lasagna Garden

It works! I did in Oakland, CA :) and my perennials and roses thrived. Big pink worms, butterflies, hummingbirds and bees loved my garden. So did my neighbors.

It's a great idea to be able to collect those coffee grounds & even egg shells from diners & coffee houses, but it such a big daily commitment. I've always thought of it as a big waste of resources not to be able to add it to the compost.

I also would like to know when this should be done. Sounds interesting to me.

I did my own lasagna garden, and made a time lapse video of it. I didn't use the newspaper between layers like you did, but I have used newspaper before and it works well too.
This raised bed has leaves, straw, manure, and Starbucks coffee grounds. We love our layered gardening as it will have very few weeds. Starbucks has a program for their used coffee grounds called "Grounds for Coffee". You can pick them up their used coffee grounds for free. The worms love it!

I hope you enjoy my video!

Interesting. I think I'm going to give it a try in a spot or two, and see how it does.

Is fall too late to try this? Would the snow of winter help or does it need the warmth of summer to really break down? Thanks for any suggestions!
