Lasagna gardening has nothing to do with what you will be growing in the garden. Lasagna gardening is all about composting and planting in layers. The term is derived from the Italian meal ‘Lasagna’ where it is composed of layers of tomatoes, spices and pasta. Just like its meal namesake, lasagna gardening is an innovative gardening strategy which helps in creating a hassle-free, till-free, dig-free garden. Also known as “sheet composting”, lasagna gardening is great for the environment, because you’re using your yard and kitchen waste and essentially composting it in place to make a new garden. One of the best things about lasagna gardening is how easy it is. You don’t have to remove existing sod and weeds. You don’t have to double dig. In fact, you don’t have to work the soil at all.
