Lay down a thick layer of CARDBOARD in your raised garden beds to kill the grass. It is perfectly safe to use and will fully decompose, but not before killing any grass below it. They’ll also provide compost and food for worms.

I need to remember this for next year when planting my patio pots!

No Digging vegetable gardening technique.. I have used this method for years. The entire website is amazing, give it a try! Unless of course, you like digging, rototilling and digging weeds all summer.. :D

no weeds for two years!! 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.

Organic soil amendments for blueberries since I am not a coffee drinker and it's not convenient to go out and collect coffee grounds. Spray with kelp solution or nettle tea to restore yellowed plants, and amend soil with shredded pine bark, peat moss, or leaf mold.

This is so neat! You put in your zip code, and it tells you what plants you should be planting now. You can even look ahead a few months to plan out your garden!

Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. use baking soda around all of the edges of flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year - spring and fall.

Great idea for a large back yard: Use your solar lights. They aren't just for the ground! Take a 2x4 and cut them into squares to fit the existing fence posts. Using galvanized screws - not nails - to screw a "L" bracket to the underneath base. Then on top, screw on the stake.
