black plastic as garden weed barrier

An invaluable aid in garden upkeep, a black plastic sheet is an effective deterrent to weed sprouting. By blocking out the light, weed seeds will not be able to reach fruition. As a means to keep weeds at bay, the plastic sheet can be elegantly placed on the ground, or gently tucked beneath the soil.

To keep the sheet in place and ensure that no weed seeds are exposed to the ground, anchor its edges. Rocks, bricks, and garden staples are all suitable for this purpose. Doing so can help you prevent the sheet from getting blown away by the wind.

If you’re utilizing the black plastic sheet to keep the weeds away beneath your mulch, remember to keep a few inches of room between its edge and the mulch itself. That’ll ensure that water can seep into the mulch and ultimately reach the soil.

For an extended period, it’s possible to leave the black plastic in its current position. When weeds start emerging, simply raise the sheeting, dispose of the sprouts, then substitute the sheet back in.
