Plastic ground cover or weed barrier
Hello, I need some help to start my new vegetable garden, last year I planted tomatoes and cabbages in the ground without any mulch or plastic cover to prevent weeds and the problem was that I found weeds all over my backyard plus a lot of bugs under them.
Now I have an space of 50' x 50' and I want to grow many kind of veggies and keep the garden all year round, and I want to avoid the problem of the weeds and I don't know what material I can use, plastic landscape fabric or weed barrier or plastic mulch???
I am afraid of the "plastic mulch" because in summer time the sun may cook the roots?
Please feel free to give any advice to help me to start my garden.
Thank you in advance!!
