Ecological Small-Space Garden Design


Tilth’, or ‘Tilthe’, is an old English word used to describe the condition and quality of the soil. Soil with good tilth has spaces for the movement of water and air. It gives you breathing room, time to observe, think, and let ideas flow. It allows you to put down roots and reach the sun. It is more than the cultivation of the soil; it is the cultivation of one’s soul.
