I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE SURE OF A PIN IN MY LIFE!!! mismatched pavers for a rustic patio

Cassia Fistula, Golden Shower Tree

Easy composting. Great microbial activity which promotes earthworms, gives you amazing soil that you could never buy anywhere else and reduces waste..

Lemongrass: Repels fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. Plant in pots and place on your porch or patio.

Start putting in your plants; work the nutrients into your soil. Wet newspapers and put layers around the plants overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspapers.

Wish I knew this sooner...... The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric. - sublime-decor

"Buried Pot Garden!! Not only will your garden be extraordinarily charming and tidy, it'll consume less water and energy. Sunken planter gardens like this one provide both form and function. The pots prevent your herbs or plants from overrunning their designated areas, and the mulch keeps unwanted weeds and pests at bay while consuming no water and energy."
