Speaking in the video, he explained: “Did you know that you don’t have to dig or till the soil?
“First you want to collect up your old cardboard boxes and make sure they have no tape on them, you want to be using boxes with as little ink on them as possible.

“If it’s your lawn or long grass, give it a strim or a mow first, then get the cardboard nice and wet.
