Weeding is a natural part of gardening, but it can be a tedious and time-consuming task. Finding ways to reduce the number of pesky weeds translates into more time enjoying the outdoors and less time working!
Naturally reducing weeds in your lawn is simpler if you keep your grass as healthy and thick as possible so that weeds cannot find space to take root. Experts suggest a few basic lawn care strategies to help with weed reduction.
- Aerate the lawn once the ground has thawed.
- Using an organic weed free top dressing mix, top dress your lawn and then over seed.
- Set your lawn mower to cut grass no shorter than 6 to 7 cm high throughout the season.
- To encourage deep root growth, water thoroughly just once a week.
Don’t let your lawn and garden products add to your weed problem! Use products guaranteed to be weed free.
When topping up your garden beds use top quality weed free triple mix soil. When you have finished planting, generously apply a layer of soft shredded cedar bark mulch. Not only will it significantly reduce weed growth, it will retain moisture even during the driest, hottest months.
Feed the soil in your vegetable garden with weedless duck compost. And use a thick layer of mulch to inhibit weed growth around raised beds or when creating pathways between the vegetable plants.
