I live in east Texas, and because of the poor quality of my soil, I had to dig out a space (to fill it back with better quality stuff) that is 2 feet deep. I ended up digging a space that is 20 feet by 16 feet. I am only going to use a part of the area- approximately half for this year. I was wondering what would be a good way to block off the area I am not going to use this year?
I am from canada so it's very different gardening than you, but I feel you should grow something easy in that area, you didn't say if it was for flowers or vegetables but you could plant squash or pumpkins that grow on their own with out much help. If flowers grow something from seed just to keep down the weeds.
