This old method of home gardening is simply related to organic gardening although there’s a little twist on the application. It involves the process by digging the plots the same size with the plot at a 1-2 feet depth. Inside the dug portion, all the garden wastes, grass clippings and other plant waste materials are deposited to lay there for a couple of weeks to decompose. This is duplicated to other plots alternately in the garden.
7 Ways You Can Apply Bio-Intensive Gardening
1) Clear the area of all weeds, grass clippings and other waste materials.
2) Put garden waste, grass clippings and other yard wastes in certain place.
3) Layout your garden according to the size of plots you want. It can be 1m X 10m length or 1m X 20 m length plot if your area is wide.
4) On the first row or plot dig the soil according to the size and length of your plot 1-2 ” depth. Place the dug soil on the side of plot to make easier to return them back.
5) Gather all you wastes, grass clippings and other landscape wastes and put them inside the dug plot. Press them properly to compress inside the dug portion.
6) Return the dug soil back into the plots where the grass clippings are deposited and compact them to cover the whole plot. It makes the dug soil raised higher above the soil at around 1 foot high.
7) Make another dug area alternately with your plots until all your waste materials are totally buried under the soil.
After a couple of weeks, you can plant on top of the raised dug plots. The garden wastes are now totally decomposed and you can utilize planting other crops alternately.
Bio-Intensive gardening is effective in areas near urban centers and other populated locations. And this is recommended from environmentalists group since it’s favorable for organic gardening.
