Lasagna garden around existing trees

14 years ago

I've posted this on a few other forums, but I wanted to see if anyone here had any advice.

I have a silver maple and 2 evergreen conifers (nothing special) that I'd like to tie together with a flower bed (probably about 35' long and 10'-15' wide).

I want to establish a lasagna (no dig) bed in the fall (this weekend, hopefully) so I can plant in it come spring.

will I hurt the trees if I lay down newspaper/leaves/grass clippings and a small amount of kitchen scraps?
