Newspaper Barrier Prevents Weeds

Newspaper Barrier Prevents Weeds

Did you know that a newspaper barrier prevents weeds in your flower garden?  It is true!  It helps cut down on weeding. 

General Guidelines:

• Use only the black and white printed sections, no sales inserts
• Spread out at least 5 pages at a time
• Cover the newspaper with mulch

Additional Info:
• The newspaper will break down and become part of the soil
• You can easily cut a hole to add additional plants

Why It Works:
As a general rule, plants need to grow towards the light.  The newspaper will block out the sun. You will already have cut holes for your regular plants and mulched around them.   It will not stop weeds completely, but it sure helps!
