As seen in: What is a keyhole garden? The hottest trend since victory gardens explained By Margaret Heidenry

Another smart aspect of keyhole gardens is the layers of compost within these raised garden beds, says Chelsea Wells-Barrett, gardening expert and founder of the blog Grow Where You Sow Homesteading.

The bottom of the entire garden bed is the thickest, made up of things like decaying logs or branches. The next layer is compostable material such as grass clippings or straw. Layer three is compost. And all of those layers are topped with soil.

Over time, the bottom layers break down and create a rich humus that continuously increases soil quality, provides your plants with nutrition, and helps balance heat and water retention.

One of my favorite outlets for asking questions is Facebook Groups.
