5.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY SBG Book You Need!
By Kathy on April 19, 2015
This book is truly a "Straw Bale Garden (SBG) for Dummies" guide! I have a large raised garden that was overcome by Bermuda over the last year, beginning with last year's vegetables/fruits. Even with a Mantis and two people, we couldn't keep it weeded. When I heard about SBGs, the concept sounded too good to be true.

So, being the overachiever I am, I put heavy black plastic over my raised garden soil to fully kill any living plants in the original bed. Then I measured and built a 32-bale garden on top of the black plastic sheeting [DON'T DO THIS, per the instructions in the book! I'd already done this step prior to buying the manual!]. After placing/conditioning/planting the bales, I spread four more bales of straw over the black plastic, to try to mitigate the book-described problems with the plastic.

I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE SBGs!! Mr. Karsten's book is truly a step-by-step "How-to...," and I recommend it above other SBG books (a few of which I bought at the same time).

Please try this type of garden, using just this one book; you won't be disappointed!
