Raised Garden Beds

Can I Solarize the Walkways Around My Beds?

ladyjericho added on June 21, 2011 | Answered

I have short raised beds and wide walkways. The garden area was clearly built by putting soil on top of grass and adding a little mulch - as you can imagine that has resulted in a lot of grass/weeds for me. Can I solarize the area around my beds, which are inhabited with happy vegetables, without damaging the plants growing in them?

Yes, this should be fine. The solariziation works by trapping the heat from the sun under the plastic. The plants outside the plastic will not experience this heat, even below the soil.
