    This cardboard technique has made my life much easier. Read the full article at my website: http://albopepper.com/landscape-fabric-vs-sheet-mulching.php

  2. I have found that crab grass loves to anchor itself in "weed fabric." That makes it even harder to pull out.

  3. If I have old mulch can I put down cardboard right over it, followed by new mulch, or should I remove the old mulch first? The old mulch is maybe an inch thick, not much left. Thanks and Great video!

  4. I like using a groundcover. I found some hardy succulents spread fast and less weeds on top of paper and wood chips. After awhile, I use less and less mulch.

  5. Do you have any brilliant organic ways to KILL blackberry bushes? It's a 30+ year battle…and the blackberries are winning!!!

  6. once a week I go to the local thrift store and gladly take their boxes. In the winter I take them to the recycle center, during gardening time, I sort through them, saving up the ones that have no color, and little tape for gardening. It gives me free stuff, and saves them paying to have them hauled away. Win, win!!

  7. I use cocoa shells, for mulch when available. I learned about chemicals when I moved to a place where they are illegal. Wood mulch is messy and breaks down quickly where I am. In the south pine needles are an effective, inexpensive and neat bedding. A tiller will make short work of the weeds and aerate soil, cover with black plastic to kill the dormant seeds. The duration depends on climate, season and type of weeds. No offense but I would never use a chemically treated paper product or any type of barrier. Loose soil makes weed removal much easier.

  8. Can they make a similar product that you lay down and roots can grow down but not up into the layer you put down?

  9. I’ve tried cardboard on Bermuda grass. Nothing kills Bermuda grass. It always finds a way around or thru the cardboard.
