Our garden is 150 square meters and no dig. The ground is sandy (it includes clay sometimes), it does not hold water for a long time and gets burned during the warm and hot months with scarce precipitation.
The upper part of the garden is 2.5 meters higher above sea level than the lower part, on a length of 22 meters. That’s why we built terraces to prevent erosion.
No dig works very well. Soil life is active, water drainage as well as water keeping are fine. The compost and organic mulches that cover the soil even forgive the kids’ playing soccer.
Also the trees got a green boost with the no dig beds and compost places around.
The healthy and colorful vegetables travel from the no dig beds to the kitchen on our family dining table. Some seeds start the new journey of sowing, planting, growing, and harvesting.
We are very happy with the results, especially regarding the limited amount of growing space available.
Hopefully, we’ll be able to scale up one day and extend the no dig gardening to other places, too :) In an ideal world, this would be a field where up to now soil is tilled.
