Cardboard in the gardens
Hi all! I am ready to embark on my 2nd year of gardening. I have learned soooo much from just reading in the forums. Thank you to everyone that shares their experiences and knowledge!
We are building 2 new lg (25 foot)flowerbeds and preping the veggie garden 15' x 23'. Last year I mulched with grass clippings. I had trouble with the bermuda grass and weeds creeping into my garden...does putting cardboard down help with that? What kind of cardboard...the thin stuff like a cereal box or the corregated layered shipping box type? Is something put on top of the cardboard? Should it be limited to just the walkways or cut out a hole for the plants? Will it work in the flowerbeds too? Pros and Cons?
DH and I have been talking this through and decided to ask the folks on the forum. :-)
