Hugelkultur Bed - How to build Hugelbeds

With many established canopy trees and bushes on our property at Rosheen Crescent 17 in Plettenberg Bay we have to maintain the view and keep pruning our trees regularly. In Plettenberg Bay it’s all about the view!

Hugelkultur or Hugelbeds are no-dig raised beds with a highly effective structure to grow food and are very low in maintenance.

Burried logs and branches act like a sponge. Rainwater is stored and then released during drier times. Actually you may never need to water your hugel bed again after the first year (except during long term droughts).
