no dig gardens - this sounds magic - anyone care to comment or pass on what they know, or dont know?

i used old sleepers, but I got slated since they are full of creosote - so I made a point of checking that out, and apparently if they are pretty well aged, anything that was going to leach out will have leached out long ago. Most wood is treated with preservatives these days, so unless you are chopping down a couple of trees............ what kind of 'natural' preservatives do you have in mind? I prefer to use whats lying about and going to waste

I was just going to cover up my raised beds with some cardboard and chuck composty stuff from the bottom of the dungheap on it over the winter - is there any problems with that - other than forcing my children to do it for me?
