Hügelkultur - a definition.

Hügelkultur is a composting process employing raised beds constructed from decaying wood debris and other compostable biomass plant materials. The process helps to improve soil fertility, water retention, and soil warming, thus benefiting plants grown on or near such mounds.

Hugelkultur raised garden beds in a nutshell

    grow a typical garden without irrigation or fertilization
    has been demonstrated to work in deserts as well as backyards
    use up rotting wood, twigs, branches and even whole trees that would otherwise go to the dump or be burned
    it is pretty much nothing more than buried wood
    can be flush with the ground, although raised garden beds are typically better
    can start small, and be added to later
    can always be small - although bigger is better
    You can save the world from global warming by doing carbon sequestration in your own back yard!
    perfect for places that have had trees blown over by storms
    can help end world hunger
    give a gift to your future self

Re: Hügelkultur - a definition.

Nice, we have tried this before on our hillside, we added lots of mulched wood, bark, root wads and other biomass and covered it with some of our used soil. The results were lots of healthy plants the next year and less watering than usual.
We have very rocky clay soil where i live and adding the organic materials really helps break it up.
