does cardboard make a good weed barrier

Cardboard is a viable natural resource for battling weeds, as it not only denies weeds the ample light needed for germination, but also smothers present ones. As such, using cardboard as a barricade against weeds is an efficient way of keeping them at bay.

Cardboard has an endearing attribute; its natural biodegradability safeguards the environment, rendering it perfectly harmless. Furthermore, its abundance and affordability have made it both ubiquitous and economical.

If you want to lock all weeds away, soaking the cardboard is the way. Lay it down with a few inch overlap, keeping those weeds beneath your trap. Make sure it’s flat and don’t move it around, no wild and pesky weeds will be found!

To keep the cardboard flat, weigh it down with bricks and stones. Additionally, mulching or overlaying with topsoil will ensure that it does not shift.

It is important to take the time to scan the cardboard for any changes in shape or positioning in regular intervals. Depending on the environment’s conditions, especially with regard to precipitation levels, you may need to replace it every few months.

Cardboard proves to be an economical and eco-friendly alternative to weed control, helping maintain order in a natural yet cost-efficient manner. Finding it is a simple process, and its affordability ensures that it is accessible to those who are budget conscious.
