Learn this no-digging, sustainable technique for raised garden beds. These beds hold moisture, build fertility, maximise surface volume and are great spaces for growing fruit, vegetables and herbs.

Practiced for centuries in Eastern Europe and Germany, hügelkultur is the process of making raised garden beds filled with rotten wood. The result is a low-maintenance garden that doesn’t require irrigation or fertilization. Hügelkultur beds have naturally good drainage and produce incredibly rich, fertile soil that retains moisture. It’s also a great way to upcycle woody debris. Hügelkultur is often utilized in permaculture systems and even works in the desert!

Hügelkultur, pronounced hoo-gul-culture, means “hill culture” or “hill mound.” Learn more at richsoil.com/hugelkultur
