This is my third year of no till, no dig gardening. I have several beds that the roots from the trees, which have been there before I began gardening in the traditional tilling each season and did not notice or have this problem. There massive root structure is terrible. Now with no tilling I have the matting of the tree roots that keep you from planting.
Also, the Dollar weeds have overtaken over half of the beds. The current beds have been covering with straw but the dollar weeds still have overtaken. In some parts of my garden. The current are long rows with landscape timbers separating the paths from the beds. There is pine straw on the paths. The rows of beds are covered with straw.
I am pleased some of the no till beds/areas I have actually seen earthworms when pulling back the straw. Very exciting! But very frustrating about the weeds and the roots. Any suggestions out there?
