newspaper as a weed barrier in garden

Gardeners are constantly bracing themselves for a battle with wild weed growth, but they can arm themselves with newspaper – an unexpected but effective tool in the war against weeds. Simply lay down a few pages of newspaper and watch it do the work of blocking pesky plants from invading your space.

Keep those pesky weeds at bay with a weed barrier! Most commonly, black plastic is used to achieve this, though newspaper can also be implemented for the same effect. Both materials are placed atop your soil to ensure a weed-free patch of ground.

Newspaper can provide an effective shield against noxious weeds due to its absorbent and biodegradable nature. Here are the advantages of newspaper as a weed barrier:

Given enough time, newspaper will decompose and its organic elements will blend into the earth, rendering it biodegradable.

By obstructing natural sunlight, the use of newspaper prevents a germination of weed seeds.

The cost of a newspaper is often minimal and procuring one is relatively simple.

Utilizing newspaper for a weed barrier is a cinch: simply flow it on top of your soil and hold it in place with bricks or stones.

To create a weed-free barrier system, newspapers can be utilized alongside other barriers like black plastic. This multi-tiered setup will ensure effective control over unwanted vegetation.

If you’re in the market for an alternative to the conventional black plastic solution, then newspaper could be your answer. An affordable and straightforward approach to containing those pesky weeds.
