Many gardeners would prefer to avoid tilling their soil. Tilling disturbs the natural balance of soil organic matter and breaks down the organic matter into smaller molecules that are less available to plant roots. It is also difficult to restore the lost fertility once tilling has been done. However, there are a few ways to create a garden without tilling.
One option is to use raised beds. Raised beds allow you to build your garden on an elevated surface to don’t have to work hard to mix and aerate the soil. You can also build your beds in modular form to easily rearrange them as your garden grows. Another option is to use natural ground covers such as succulents or berry bushes. These plants can help hold the soil in place and add nutrients to the soil.
