I’m thinking about a bed that’s at the top of our property, and right next to the sidewalk, and trying to decide if it’s worth running a trench from my downspouts, or if a hugel will retain enough water. Since it would be quite close to our (busy) sidewalk, mine would also be of a sunken design.

Very nice project you have going there! I like the way you are combining several processes all at once. I especially like the fact that you are combining mushrooms to the project, if it were me, I would add in wine cap mushrooms as they really eat the wood quickly and leave behind a nice, rich bedding material when they are done. But even without going to wine caps this is nicely done. Please let us know how things work out for you!
