One of the problems some people have with starting their own garden is simply the amount of work, time, and effort that can go into it, especially if you feel you have to spend a good deal of your time digging before you can get started. There is an alternative, and it is called “no dig” gardening. Essentially you lay down your seeds then cover with compost, which can save you hours over the usual method of digging up the soil, mixing in compost, fertilizer, and then digging your rows before you even get started. Charles Dowding has had excellent results with his no dig gardening techniques, getting about 5% higher yields with fewer weeds, and a lot less time and effort. This is certainly a method to look into and the video below goes into explaining it in more detail.
