Just 3 simple steps: Pour quick-set concrete into the mold on any flat surface. Smooth with a trowel. Wait one minute, lift mold and move on. This mold measures 20 inches x 24 inches x 2 inches, and holds one 60 pound bag of premix concrete. Makes a straight path or patio.
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.
