Can You use magazine or catalog colored pages under pine straw ? I know you can use newspaper -and I do that. Our Bermuda grass is sprouting up in my main flower bed!

Most colored inks nowadays are made from soy and are perfectly safe to use on the soil around your plants. There was a concern about colored pages in the past, as well as the paper stock but most glossy pages are made from recycled paper now and should not cause a problem in the garden.
