There is, indeed. You are looking for a weed barrier or landscape fabric. It keeps weeds from sprouting. You can either empty the bed of plants and lay the weed barrier over the soil and cut X's or holes for your plants or you can cut the weed barrier into strips to place between your plants. Either way, your flower bed will be weed free for many years. Enjoy your garden!
