If you have space constraints and cannot create a full-fledged garden, lasagna hydroponics gardening would be a rewarding experience for you. Lasagna or layered gardening is a no-till, no-dig gardening method that results in rich production with very little work from the gardener. Lasagna vegetable gardening is becoming more and more popular these days. It’s all about composting and planting in layers sans soil.
In this process, there is no need to remove existing sod and weeds; you do not even have to double dig. You do not require a big site to get started. Just select a small space in your garden and start gardening by collecting old newspapers or card boards to make layers. This method helps to reduce watering and weeding since the crops are grown close together. The first layer of your lasagna garden should consists of cardboard or three separate layers of newspaper spread directly on top of the grass you have chosen for your gardening. The second layer should contain a water-absorbing material such as peat moss or coir and the third layer comprises of organic material added atop the coir. You need to sprinkle garden layers with materials like wood ash and bone meal just before you start arranging the plants. Do not forget to add potassium and phosphorus to the layers. Water the layers well from the top with a solution of hydroponics fertilizer or perhaps a manure tea. As your plants continue to grow, add water without nutrients. You can make your own lasagna garden throughout the year.
Lasagna vegetable garden needs less maintenance since with this method there is no tilling, digging, or use of soil. It is a fun to grow vegetable with this process that allows you to make new gardens at a much faster rate than the traditional method of hydroponic growing.
