Original Message Weeds, Weeds, Weeds
Depending on what "weed" you have most
can be controlled by a good, heavy
mulch while others may need some
newspaper covered by a good, heavy
mulch. The pre emergent herbicides are
not necessary if your mulch is dense
enough to keep those plants from access
to sunlight which is what they need to
grow. A good layer of vegetative mulch
in your flower beds, minimum of 4
inches and more is better, will keep
those "weeds" fom getting any sunlight.
Not cultivating the soil will also keep
any "weed" seeds down in the soil from
getting pulled to the durface where
they have a better chance of
germinating.
