Trench composting - Dig a short one foot ditch, chop yard trimmings and food scraps, and mix them into the soil in the bottom four inches of the trench. Resume digging the trench until the materials are covered and a new trench is formed. When creating any kind of compost pile, avoid using material that re-sprouts, such as willow, alder, and Bermuda grass.

Hügelkultur Bed. Hügelkultur is a raised plant bed built over decaying wood and compostable materials. A fallen tree becomes a “nurse log”, decomposing, releasing nutrients, and nourishing new growth above for years, even decades. As the wood decays, it becomes more porous, storing water like a giant sponge, and releasing it slowly back into the bed’s soil. This means less plant watering; some gardeners report their beds thrived all season from rainfall alone.
