Lasagna Gardening

About a year ago my sister showed us how to convert lawn to garden.
On top of cut grass we layered: newspaper, cardboard, grass clippings, leaves, coffee grounds, manure + topsoil, and finally a top soil layer. 

Now I have planted a green mulch - comfrey.

I laid down a layer of paper around the plants to suppress the weeds until the comfry plants take hold.

A layer of Douglas-fir mulch holds the paper in place and also acts as a weed suppressant.
It is all an experiment.
