Grass in a Garden


Anonymous added on April 12, 2011 | Answered

Last year I started a flower and vegetable garden on my existing lawn. I tilled the area very thoroughly but still fought the invasion of grass throughout the year. Is there anything I can treat this area with that will kill the grass but not harm the vegetables or flowers? I have tilled the area thoroughly in preparation for planting this weekend. Also, if there is something I can use , should I continue using it after planting to control the spread of grass?

You may want to consider planting a no-dig garden. This provides the same benefits as a traditional garden but without the hassle of digging or tilling...and is great for knocking out those pesky weeds, especially unwanted grass.
