    ... layer of black mulch fabric. Not a square inch of ground is wasted. Once again, it seems to be all hand labour, without a machine in sight. Nearly all the houses have solar thermal units, but we don't see any photovoltaics: odd given that Chinese manufacturers dominate the market for these.
