river rocks in a box + garden hose = clean feet what a great garden idea! Placed in the sun will heat the stones as well.  Great way to wash off little feet covered with grass and dirt before coming inside.

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.
