What can I do to keep raccoons out of my flower beds and flower pots?
I've been tackling the problem this year...somehow got gort? weed in two of my beds...a real nightmare. I've been putting down layers of newspaper and then very carefully spot spraying with weed killer. Will put another layer of newspaper and then a good layer of mulch. A lot of work, but worth it if I can win this battle.
Good luck to you!
you know, we just get down on our hands and knees and start bagging them. yes, it is hard work and it will take time but that is the BEST way to do it. Finish it off with a good covering of straw and plenty of it.
I just pull them up by hand root and all. If you leave the slightest bit of root, here comes another weed. I then put very thick layers of newspaper down, wet it then a thick layer of mulch. I have actually had better luck with the newspaper at keeping the weeds at bay than the black weed cloth.
