RE: grass

You can, but I'd use newspaper or cardboard instead of plastic.

RE: grass

agree with lynnmarie

RE: grass

The rcycle place or a place that ships in solar pannels is a great source for large sheets of FREE cardboard.

RE: grass

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.

RE: grass

I totally agree with you, merrybookwyrm. Bermuda will come back even from the dead.
