No dig garden in 3 months
(Greenbelt, Ontario, Canada)
I am creating somewhat of a raised bed garden, depending how much compost I get, and I would like to kill the grass and prevent weeds. I am laying down and building at the beginning of May.
If I lay down newspaper will it decompose on time to allow for the plant roots to penetrate the ground and anchor into the ground below? The soil in the ground is a lovely condition.
I'm also worried about the winds drying out my plants, because it is a very windy area.
Any advice is appreciated. Thank-you.
