Quick Tip-Stop Weeds in Your Flower Beds

Weeds are the scourge of all gardeners. It seems like a never ending battle, doesn’t it?

To help give you the edge on the war against weeds, here is a tip for you:

Use about a 3 inch layer of mulch around your plants. Not only will it help keep the weeds from growing, it will  help keep the moisture in.

And use an organic mulch if possible such as cocoa hulls (unless you have pets-it’s toxic to dogs and I believe cats too), straw or shredded bark. Using organic mulch will give your soil more nutrients  as it breaks down.
