I am busy cleaning up my yard for this year's planting season. As I'm cleaning I am finding weed paper that was placed in the garden several years ago. I am curious how can I plant new annuals and/or perennials when weed paper is present. Do I move it and plant around it? Or, do I plant over it with new soil.

The weed block will stop the roots of your new plants from growing deep into the soil. When you dig a hole to plant, be sure to dig through and remove the weed block in the the hole. This will allow the roots of your plants to penetrate deeply.

Best wishes with your new plants.
