As good as this method sounds, I do have some concerns. Many of the after images I've seen, include hugelkulture's that are covered in weeds. One comment my husband made after watching a video with me was "it looks like any pile of dirt after a couple weeks". Weeds love having dirt stirred up (why I don't till) so we would have to be careful where we get dirt for this project. However, by using the same mulching method that I use in the garden, perhaps it would work for us.
If anyone has used this method I would love to hear your thoughts.
