Use Newspaper For Weed Control

You can use newspaper for weed control, place 3/4 inch overlapping layers of newspaper around your shrubs/plants. Soak it down with water and wait for 24 hours before you place decorative mulch on top. It keeps weeds away while recycling. Save lots of $, no need to buy black gardening plastic. Don't have enough newspaper around? Ask your neighbors for their newspapers and help save the earth.

Cardboard also works well as a weed control mulch. Just layer it as described above and cover with woodchips. (02/26/2007)
