I have a blank canvas hill. I’ve just removed all weeds, etc.
I’d like to prevent future weeds – (a).
And, I’d like to prepare the soil for planting both fruit trees and decoratives.

Can you please help me with some suggestions and the order in which I should do thigs.
I would really appreciate any help you can afford.

Thank you.

All the Best,

Enriching your soil with compost and tilling it in is a good way to prep the soil for the transplant. Make sure to put down garden bed liner anywhere there will not be a plant or tree. This can help with weeds, but unfortunately, to have a weed free area will require both chemical means and diligence with manual labor. It is quite difficult to prevent all weeds in an area without both.
