What is the best thing to put between the beds.
First of all let me say what a WONDERFUL forum! I have been gardening for years here in KS and the weeds have always been my demise, especially bind weed (a morning glory looking thing). I think the stuff would survive a nuclear war.
My husband is helping me with the garden this year and he thinks we should plant grass between the beds. After the initial set up the rest of the gardening is left to me and I'm not willing to do any more weeding than absoultely necessary. I'm leaning towards to covering the entire garden area with several layers of cardboard topped off with a couple of layers of landscaping fabric for good measure to supress and smother the prennials I know are waiting to tourture me. Then put the beds on this and fill pretty much as Mel suggested.
Any suggestions on what you folks have found the best material to use between the beds? I want my garden to be functionable as well as pretty.
