In an effort to reduce the number of darn weeds in the main garden, I've had to resort to mulching the pathways. We have Lots of empty paper feed bags from animal feed....so I've been laying them down on all the main paths.
I've been overlapping them by a good margin, in an attempt to ensure weeds don't start to come up between the bags.
And..since we still had a full bale of straw left from last Fall, I've put the straw down on top of the paper bags. Then I wet it all down with the garden hose, just in case the wind comes up. I don't want the straw blowing away....I need it!
Hopefully this works, it should. I've got my hands full enough as it is with trying to keep the weeds down in the gardens. I need every bit of help I can get!
Come Fall, the paper bags should have started to break down and they'll get tilled under. If they're still in good shape, I'll lift them up.
What do you use for mulching your garden paths?Sphere: Related Content
