Mulching Tip - Keep the Weeds & Seeds in the Dark!
Posted: April 12, 2012
Anyone who has a garden or landscape bed will benefit from using mulch.
It creates a barrier to prevent weeds from growing, retains moisture in
the soil and adds organic material. An easy and inexpensive method to
keep the weeds in the dark longer is to start with a layer of newspaper
or cardboard. Watch a short instruction video here: http://youtu.be/p57bah6GxNw
Be sure to overlap the edges of the paper in order to cover the soil entirely to prevent weeds and seeds from seeing the light. Cover the paper with a layer of bark mulch or other organic material such as straw or grass clippings.
