Flower Beds & Weeds
Posted by Lori-b from Florida on 2008-10-21 12:56:00

I cut into the grass(bermudia)to make a flower bed. I'm having a horrible time keeping the old grass from returning. I've used preemergent, plastic and have dug it out several times removing every glimpse of root I've found. I was told to put news paper down under the soil, then plant. Does that really work? I'm ready to put cardboard, preemergent and commercial weed blocker down! I'm determined to have my flower bed & save my back. Please help.
Frustrated & in pain in Florida(:
