This really works - we did it for our raised beds and regular garden, 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.

All you need to do is pull the current weeds out from your flower bed and discard them. Next you lay the newspaper down making sure to cover the entire area. using a hose wet down the newspaper. Make sure you get the newspaper completely wet. Lay down your mulch.

(Um... Just paint marbles w/ glow in dark paint.) "Fairy Berries" are glowing white LED balls to place anywhere in your garden for your next party or event. Place on the lawn, in the garden, hang from your trees or gazebo. Measuring .75 inch in diameter they produce a moving firefly or fairy light effect that is so unique. The water resistant design lets you place them in your pond, pool or floating centerpieces.

Lawn redo- start by getting sample and killing grass (when your growing more weeds than grass)

Fill pot with 2" of soil then place one uncracked raw egg in the pot. As it decomposes, it will serve as a natural fertilizer.

Start putting in your plants; work the nutrients into your soil. Wet newspapers and put layers around the plants overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspapers.
