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.
Great planter idea for yards that just don't have all that room for a Flower/Veggie Garden. You can go crazy with paints or mini Cobblestones. Do different Tile/Glass Mosaics on each one. The possibilities are endless♥
Migratory birds (and other critters) need a diet of heavy-duty food on a regular basis to thrive over the winter months. Here are just a few of the plants you can sink into your landscape right now to help keep them happy and healthy (and you get the excitement of watching them, too).
