Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. I use baking soda in a 6" wide area around all of the edges of my flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into my beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. I usually have to do this twice a year - spring and fall.  Hmm worth a try.  I hate weeding

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.
