TOP TIP: Flower Pot Drain Hole Cover: Just lay a coffee filter in the bottom of the pot covering the hole before filling the pot. The soil will stay in the pot and the water will still drain out because that is what coffee filters are designed to do; let water through.

Movable gardens

Instead of purchasing expensive landscape cloth, herbicides or spending hours on your knees pulling weeds, good old fashion newspaper is a great substitute to control unsightly weeds. Use several sheets of newspaper as you would landscape cloth. Wet the newspaper , then cover with mulch. It allows moisture into the soil and blocks most weeds for at least 3 years. Eventually the newspaper composts into the soil.
