Put newspaper over the dirt 3-4 pages thick & then cover it with mulch. The newspaper will prevent any grass & weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass & weed seeds that had been present in the soil will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, & when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.
