Gardener’s dream of a lush green garden free of pesky weeds that threaten the health of vegetables and flowers. Maintaining a garden free of weeds takes a little work, but the effort is certainly worth it. There are two basic ways to rid your garden of weeds and keep it that way. One is tilling and hoeing the soil regularly and the other is by using mulch. Follow these steps to maintain a weed free garden this year.
Save grass clippings from mowing your lawn and cover areas where you want to get rid of weeds with two to three inches of grass clippings. If you do not have enough clippings, check with your neighbors. They will be glad to get rid of the clippings from their lawn.
