Because we have several large patches of bare dirt in our backyard (in various places), we have several large patches of weeds. I don’t mind pulling the bigger weeds, but sometimes there are a lot of small ones, and they are a pain to pull.
So I thought I’d share with you a little trick to kill large patches of weeds without a lot of effort…and no…it doesn’t involve Round-Up 🙂
I did this just over the weekend because I will leave it through the winter and hopefully have some nice, somewhat-amended dirt in the spring – weed free of course!
This will smother your weeds and the newspaper will break down on its own. It’s a great way to cover up a lot of weeds (and prevent their seeds from spreading this fall) and I can just let it sit all winter and break down. Then in the spring, the weeds will be composted into the soil, no new seeds will have spread, and I can start planting in this area. 🙂
Great idea! Never heard of that. I could use that in a few spots. Thanks.Brooke
