I wanted to show you what I am doing in my garden this year to help you with this simple but efficient and eco-friendly concept.

Yesterday I took our grass clippings and put them between our raised rows. I already had Prostrate Spurge, Kochia, Horsetail and Purslane seedlings in my veggie garden. Since they are still little, I am able to just cover them with grass clippings to kill them off. I let my grass clippings dry out for a few days and then put them in. I really push them down to get a nice tight layer so they won’t blow away. I don’t have mulch in my rows yet since I still have a lot of seedlings that I want to get bigger before I put mulch around them. Once again, you don’t have to spend your time weeding if you take the time now to get a good layer of organic material down. To read my initial post on this subject click here.

Grass Clippings between raised rows.

Grass Clippings between raised rows. Notice I have clippings around the base of each plant to help retain moisture.

Example of where my clippings from last year have broken down and are thinning and behold weeds have appeared! I won't pull these weeds since they are small enough to just put two inches or more of clippings on top.
