I just baught a home and im wanting to plant some flowers etc along my fence.My question is can i just kill out the grass weed eat it as close to ground add a sheet of plastic add dirt over plastic then plant. Please help rookie gardner....lol
You can, but I'd use newspaper or cardboard instead of plastic.
agree with lynnmarie
The rcycle place or a place that ships in solar pannels is a great source for large sheets of FREE cardboard.
If the grass is bermuda, nut grass, or johnson grass, then you may need to kill it first before you put down the cardboard. I'm developing a 'dead plant' policy where those three are concerned before planting anything else where they might have been growing. ymmv.
I totally agree with you, merrybookwyrm. Bermuda will come back even from the dead.
