an interesting read, and likely a good option for small areas where raised beds are needed. For me, I would bury the wood deep and try to increase the top soil depth. This would require a much larger area than mentioned in the article.

I might try this with one of my raised beds just to see how it works out.

be mindful of the line about nutrients. The decomposition of wood uses a lot of Nitrogen...plan accordingly

that'll work, chicken manure is pretty "hot" so it should handle the wood just fine
