I am glad that "neat appearence"  does not apply to the jungle,  forest, etc. 
 We need a "mind change" to conform to the best gardening  practices. That 
one tilling is costing the soil organic matter.  It  destroys the roots that 
directs water deeper into the soil.   It destroys earth worms. Tilling  destroys 
their tunnels which, also, carry water deeper into  the soil.  It exposes the 
soil to the Sun.  
Read Ruth Stout's two little books.  7,000 people visited her no-till  
garden. Even better get her video. She did one thing in her garden  that is not 
recommended in a community garden!!  See the video.   It works.
