Hate weeds? Hate digging? I've got some great news for you!

Recently, Kate from The Manic Gardener sat down with Lee Reich to talk about weed-free (and digging-free!) gardening, and how this approach is not only easy but healthy and sustainable.

Lee takes a top-down approach to controlling weeds and cultivating healthy soil; by not disturbing the soil, weeds don't have a chance to spread their seeds, and nutrients can be added to the top layer as compost, acting as mulch. His system involves permanent beds and paths, and again — no digging allowed!

He follows four basic principles that give him that luscious garden (seen above)… go visit Kate's site to read about the steps, listen to the podcast, and find out more!
