Creeping Thyme

Weeds Taking Over Creeping Thyme


Sharon93212 added on June 2, 2015 | Answered

I recently planted my backyard in creeping thyme. We tilled up the grass, applied mulch, and planted the thyme seedlings about 10 inches apart. Now I have the grass/weeds growing in faster than the thyme. I have applied Roundup to some of the weeds but I really don't like to use it and I am afraid of killing my plants. Is there something I can use now? I know that pulling the weeds is the best way, but this is a large area to cover inches apart.
