How to Have a Weed-Free Garden Bed

Everyone wants a weed-free garden bed, but not many enjoy weeding. If you don't enjoy weeding, hiring a weed prevention service to do the work for you is a great option. If you prefer to weed yourself, here are some great tips that will cut down hours of weeding. The article "Six Tips for Effective Weed Control" gives great advice on the importance of mulching to keep weeds to a minimum.
Mulch benefits plants by keeping the soil cool and moist and depriving weeds of light. Organic mulches, in particular, can actually host crickets and carabid beetles, which seek out and devour thousands of weed seeds.      
  Mulching is a great form of chemical-free weed prevention. There are other methods that decrease weeds in your garden. This short video gives a few tips to keep weeds down.

If you would prefer organic weed control, there are numerous tips from the article "Organic Weed Control Tips for Gardeners."
Design the weeds out of the garden. Start your foray into earth friendly weed control by using good design to prevent weeds from moving into the garden in the first place.
  • Choose fungal disease-resistant varieties of plants that can be spaced a little closer together, giving weeds less room to find a home.
  • Design the garden so you don’t have a lot of empty spaces for weeds to take over.
  • Use different heights of plants to build layers that shade the soil, making an unwelcome environment for weed seed germination.
  • Use mixed ground covers to blanket the bare soil many weeds love.
  • Organize the vegetable garden so you have low-growing plants covering the bare soil around taller species.
  • Grow a thick, healthy lawn that has no room for weeds.
You are now ready to keep your garden beds looking pristine all season long with mulching, proper garden design and ground covers.
