Q.How To Create A New Garden Bed In Site With Grass, Weeds, Clover In Fall?
The original site has grass, weeds, clover. Now in mid Sept in the north east near Lake Ontario, I piled on clumps of soil removed from setting down pavers for a walkway. Contains same grass weeds clover mix. I want to get weeds to decompose and bed ready for next spring planting. I heard of using cardboard cover and layer of compost on top of pile. Will this work well? Or another way?But I’m no fan of shaking off the dirt and removing weeds manually.
