Bark

We've been on a bit of a bark/woodchip rampage around our garden.  We watched the documentary 'Back to Eden'

This article summarises the method.  Basically the wood chips provide a skin for the soil and protect it.  

I actually haven't come into gardening thinking I need to 'till the soil'  infact I am really a believer in leaving the soil alone and trying to add as much organic matter as I can to help it be a strong ecosystem.
