How to start a garden without having to dig out grass and weeds
Transform your lawn into a flower garden in 8 weeks without digging
"I have recently moved into a new house and want to start a garden. The ground around the house is full of grass and weeds
and I need to know how to get rid of both of them without having to dig it all up. I am unable to do heavy manual labour. Is there an easier way?
The steps to follow.
Gather your materials starting with a supply of newspaper, enough to cover the entire garden area you wish to plant with a layer six sheets thick.
Use only the black print pages and not the shiny inserts you normally find with newspapers, enough compost to cover the area covered by the
newspaper up to a depth of three inches and enough mulch, straw or hay, even grass clippings and dirt to cover the compost.
It 's now time for nature to take its course and to provide you with a ready to plant garden bed.
Nature needs about a month for the earthworms and other organisms in the soil and compost to begin decomposing the various organic items.
While they are preparing your soil you can plan your garden.
