Put the newspaper over the dirt 3-4 pages thick and then covered it with mulch. 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.

Would be great as a garden border.  Lay the 'hole' side down so the mosaic shows out then fill holes with dirt & flowers.

DIY wooden planter - love this especially for display on a deck- but I'm not that handy to make one myself. **Place on corner of deck & plant Lemon Grass in it to keep bugs away
