HOW TO GARDEN WITHOUT USING A ROTOTILLER?

Work between the rows:

Once a garden is cultivated, most of the gardeners’ time is spent to keep the weeds out of the areas between the trees. For a typical garden, this means to run a rototiller one or two times (even more) each week to keep the weeds from growing between the rows.

This is not only time-consuming, but also could be very expensive and probably make more weeds than before. In addition, it also results in pressing the soil when you walk behind the rototiller and damaging the area that you have just worked.

For these above reasons, you should simply cover them with a large amount of woodchip, straw or leaves and also keep the weeds out. Moreover, it also keeps off the heavy soles and the feet of the areas of the tree, thereby permitting them to grow and expand.

If the walking rows begin to have a few weeds, it would take gardeners about five minutes to with a weed eater (you should go for the best model by reading some online weed eater reviews), chopping them down and then cover with a little bit mulch. Your garden will remains great – and the weeds are constrained to the minimum by not damaging the soil.

Plant your garden:

Whenever I look at a large plot with bare soil in a garden, all that I could think is the amount of work go into tilling the whole area and also the amount of weeds the area would most likely be in the next weeks. Until now, I have never known the process of tilling up everything. Thus, why not spend your time sensibly and just till the area that you would plant in?

I will use my garden as a basic example of saving the time. The actual size of our garden is 40 x 60 meters, which for most people could be a garden with average size. However, the trees and zone space for root take up about 20 per cent of the area. If I am about to till the whole garden for a few times to have the smooth soil, even with a big rototiller, it could take me the whole day, and then I  still need to carve the spacing and the row. It could be an exhausting and long event. With our present garden, I could flip the 18 inches row and get it planted in a small part.

In addition, when it comes to planting the crop or using the compost, we could grow and apply these compost or crops to only the needed area of planting.

The structure of soil:

The last point with a rototiller is that the soil could be too fine and release most of the structure when we used it too much. This could result in the need for getting more water and the loss of the topsoil by rain or wind erosion.

Rototiller has its place

So for fan of a rototiller, there are still a little bit of great news as it could be used greatly in some tasks:

They are suitable for making the soil smooth for yard, and could be possible to run through the pile of compost to chop and incorporate the material. And when are creating a garden for your first time from the area of grass, they could do a good job of making an area for the plants. Although if I needed to make one in this way, I could still just till the working row and cover them to cut down the work.
