Letting garden rest with no weeds
I have a 16x16 foot area used some years as a vegetable garden. I'd like to find some technique to prevent it from growing up into weeds in the years we don't plant it. One year I tried covering with clear plastic, but it only lasted a couple months before becoming brittle and disintigrating. I'd like to find something that would last a year, but not be too hard to remove at the end. Any suggestions?
