With traditional soil gardens, it’s common to rototill or double-dig the garden each Spring with a shovel.
These tasks are extremely physically demanding, and require tools and extra man power.
SBG can be done with zero tools. You won’t have to do any digging at all.
Some plants you will grow from a seed bed on the top of the bale. Seedlings & transplants are just tucked into the bale.
You won’t need a shovel & you won’t break a sweat during the planting process.
