When attempting to stop weeds from growing in a garden, the subject of plastic and weed barrier fabric come to mind. If you have a new garden which is mostly made up of shrubs, ornamental grasses, and robust perennials, then landscape fabric can be a good choice for about ten years. This is also assuming that you’ve surrounded the plants with quality soil. By the end of ten years, your shrubs and plants will be big enough to block the sun, and effectively help reduce weeds.
As an alternative, you can also use thick layers of newspaper as a “green solution”. Also, if you have the time and desire, you can pull the weeds when they’re tiny for the first year, then after that point a good thick layer of wood chip mulch is going to be every bit as effective as landscape fabric.
Regardless of which direction you choose, Buffalo Landscaping in Greeley can help you figure out the right weed barrier solution and install it for you.
