Weed Control

Strategies for keeping weed under control

For new gardens, it might be good to spend a year or two on weed control before you start planting vegetables. Here are some strategies for weed control:

  1. Smother crop are rapidly growing crops to help suppress weed growth.
  2. Solarization involves placing clear plastic over tilled garden until mid-summer. This helps control diseases and pests.
  3. Use mulches. Make sure the mulch is free of weed plants and seeds. They can help control weed and become useful organic matter as it breaks down.
