yes, the mind boggles ........ it just does not make sense. Who made THOSE rules! :?
I realise that PA's method is not swales but contour channels. Still I thought the same rules could apply to swales in regards to using the soil in the same way and planting.

Where can I find some information on the construction of the contour channeling mentioned in Peter's books?
After almost 4 years Robyn here is the practical answer to your question :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

The proof is in the following pictures !!! :D :D :D

Here is the contour/wetlands that the inaugural NSF course cohort surveyed and built in their 2-day workshop back in the end of May. A month later after a major rain event and voila !!!

Come and learn at Tarwyn Park !! Rehydrate and build fertility on your farm the way the old Australian landscape used to do it.
