A successful vegetable garden is made possible through the addition of a weed barrier, securely staving off pesky vegetation and fostering an environment of hardy growth.
A wide array of weed barriers exist, but black plastic is the one used most often. It lies on top of the ground with the plants’ placement marked by cuts in the material. Not only does it prevent weeds, but it also assists in retaining soil moisture and maintaining a warm environment.
To help keep your mulch secure and bordering vegetation free, consider using landscape fabric beneath it. This protective barrier also acts as a shield, blocking weeds from breaking through the mulch and stopping it from becoming airborne due to strong gusts of wind.
Keeping weeds in check can be difficult, but a weed barrier can make it easier. For those with abundant vegetation problems, this tool can work wonders for those wishing to take their vegetable garden to the next level and reap its full harvest potential.
