Changing Existing Terraced Gardens


chark41 added on October 27, 2015 | Answered

How to change existing terraced veggie gardens to some form of keyhole or permaculture? I have 3 terraced beds, about 8x5, going down a hillside facing south in Boulder, CO. They are baked by the sun all 4 seasons. For years they were double dug with added compost but have become more compacted and less productive. I have used wood blocks to step on so as not to add to the problem. I can no longer maintain it as is (74 female with bad shoulder). Could perhaps get help for this fall yet before freezing, though. Also, I have high winter winds.
