Weed control with black plastic
On my! The weeds and grasses got totally out of control last year because of all the rainfall. This year is a nightmare trying to control in natural ways.
I hear talk about using silage tarps for weed control. I understand the method but I have a couple of questions regarding these tarps.
#1 Where does a person get hold of them? What are names for them? My search has not been very forthcoming. I’m in Canada
#2 What are the implications to the soil? Such as how toxic are they to the food we plan to grow? I believe some are UVray protected. We are trying to be as organic as possible.
Please share your experiences and ideas. I am asking specifically about the tarps not digging methods etc. I have to lessen the labour load as we have a huge garden and don’t use a tiller.
