No till gardening
One of the easiest way of preparing your land for gardening is the none till gardening approach. I take broken down cardboard boxes, the types you can get from shops, the garden center or McDonald’s and lay them down on the ground. Making sure to remove any plastic as that won’t decompose. Then add your compost on top and your ready to start planting your gardening. A whole lawn or boarder can be done relatively fast this way. It is the way I did it and it worked fast and great.
