Living mulch in the Garden Part 2: Ecological Gardening

This is a follow up to my Living Mulch in the Garden video.
Here I show you the results of the techniques I applied in the earlier video, after 6 weeks of growth. I talk a bit more about living mulch and how to maintain it, as well as introducing the concept of ecological gardening. If we aim to facilitate a balanced ecosystem in our garden that closely resembles the balanced ecosystems found in nature, our plants will be much healthier and we will be providing a beautiful environment for people and wildlife. These gardens are self regulating and require much less maintenance than a traditional bare earth garden.
