HOW TO USE BLACK PLASTIC SHEETING FOR WEED CONTROL




For many of us, weed control can a real chore. At its best, its a job that takes time out of the day when you could be doing something more productive. At its worst it can be a never ending nightmare that saps your resolve and drains your passion for gardening.

Of course there a number of ways that you can attack the problem of serious weed infestation - landscape fabric, herbicides or even soil sterilisation. However, when the going gets tough the most vigorous of weeds can still grow through.

I have had the great fortune to discover the short videos of Jami and Brian Boys, the brains behind the excellent An Oregan Cottage home and gardening site. I love these two and the work they do, and they have provided this brilliant short clip about the benefits of using plastic in the garden.
