Hi everyone! Well.. I chose a funny place to start a micro swale garden it seems. Right out my back door, great zone 1 position, it's a space about 6.2m x 5.4m that gets morning sun, but not afternoon. Looking forward to getting my herbs and kitchen plants growing - BUT.. the ground seems to go in every direction. I have a little 42cm wide A frame level, pegging it out, I get 90 degree turns and crazy undunlating ground makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong. I can't seem to get a second swale below the first in any similar contour, as the ground suddenly turns 90 degrees, or is off completely from the first swale. Forgetting the "small and slow" principle, I started digging a 1m swale and a 1m garden bed, but I became so frustrated with the second swale that I filled it all in. I would love to get it right this time, but I need help! I've searched online, but having trouble finding anyone with similar issues. I wish I could draw a picture and send it, but my internet is pretty basic and spotty at best. Hoping I've explained what I mean well enough!! I'm just not sure what to do after the first swale. Thanks so much. Manda.
