|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.
