|How are weeds controlled in beds with shrubbery and perrenials?

First off, welcome to the forum!
Second off, I work as a Garden associate at Lowes, I might be able to help you. Weeds in beds are usually controlled by weeding every one or two days. If you see a weed just starting to grow, you pick it immediately. That is basically it. If the weeds do get out of hand, it gets much harder. I know that from experience.
A couple of questions. Does the area you are trying to control weeds already have flowers and shrubs in it?
How big are the weeds and the bed?
I might have an idea of how to help you out.

|Hi & welcome!
Excellent info so far, to pull them. There are many other tips & techniques possible, depending on which unwanted plant(s) is/are growing. As asked, the question is too vague to answer more than the above. Adding pics of the trouble spot would elicit even more relevant and specific suggestions.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

|You can also introduce a shade tolerant ground cover to compete with the weeds. I've had good luck with vinca minor, which climbs up into the base of the shrubs a bit but mostly stays on the ground. Pretty little purple flowers in spring. Some folks find this invasive, I don't.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Most of us spread a nice thick layer of wood chips after hand-pulling.
Most annual volunteering plants need sunlight to hit the seeds before they germinate. The mulch prevents this.
