Dealing with weeds

When starting a new flower bed one can put down a large sheet of plastic and cut out the plastic in the places where you want to plant trees and shrubs. One can then cover the plastic with mulch, gravel, pebbles or wood chips. They say that if you plant close together then the weeds are crowded out. A thick layer of mulch will deter weed growth and will also provide structure and fertilizer to your soil. If you have weeds growing in the garden then digging them out individually is far better then digging over the soil in the bed as this brings new weed seed to the surface.
