Manic Monday mindless weed prevention

Mortgage and Lending with Sunstreet Mortgage

Use Newspaper to keep weeds away, not a trick.

First of all, collect all your old newspapers!

Then, wet the newpapers while putting layers around the plants (overlapping as you go). Next, cover the area with mulch and forget about your weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic but they will not get through newspapers! Try it, it works!!

Now if only I had read this, or you had posted this, much earlier in my planting year, LOL. I will try to remember this trick. We use fresh cow manure for fertilizer and the weeds are overwhelming! Thanks for the tip!

I am amazed at what you learn here on Active Rain.  I never knew this great gardening tip but I will definitely be trying it in the future.

Thank you so much for posting.
