Sheet Mulching is a very basic and important Permaculture skill.
Sometimes called “blanket composting”, “no-work” or “no-dig” gardening, it is very representative of Permaculture in terms of modeling Nature.
This is the start of the Medicine Wheel Garden. As you see, we are layering the Sheet Mulching right on top of the lawn. No need to dig or pull weeds. They become part of the nutrient base for the new garden.
We applied simple bioremediation techniques to allow the pond to purify itself. This is a “before” photo. Looking good, but not purifying itself. Then the Pond Work Team started to dig in — here are some of the pics and details.

Site selection is important. In our valley, a shaded site that will retain moisture is critical. This site in the photo is under a large apple tree. It is close to a water spigot, to make it easy to keep moist.
In Permaculture, we place plants together that will naturally support each other, mimicking that design.
In this fruit tree guild, the central element is a fruit tree, and each guild also has a beneficial insect attractor plant, harmful insect repeller plant, a nitrogen-fixer to help provide nutrients, and a food crop—in this case, squash.
