Sheet mulching

  1. Collect old cardboard and flatten it into sheets.
  2. With this, cover the vegetable beds.
  3. With rotted down compost cover the top so that the cardboard is weighted down and will not blow away.
  4. This will keep the weeds down.
  5. Eventually the cardboard will break down.
  6. Once broken down the cardboard is ready for digging in (wait until the spring time).
