Hi, I just moved to a 10 acre property and need some advice on starting a compost pile. I have a lot of cardboard, 20 large oak and maple trees that were cut down 6 months ago for a septic site, and 2 acres of tall weeds/grass. I plan on using most of the trees for firewood. My wife would like the cardboard gone and the weeds cut down. I do plan on starting a garden next year as well as getting some chickens.
I am interested in sheet mulching, and possibly hugel mounds, and am either going to rent or buy a wood chipper.
