Converting a weed patch to a garden

gwtamaraJanuary 1, 2013

To get rid of weeds to start a new garden is easy. Cover the ground with black and white newspapers on which you put soil or mulch or both. You can then garden immediately. The weeds will get choked and the paper will eventually compost. Plastic cover is possible but can lead to fungus diseases. Digging or tilling the soil first is counterproductive because it brings more weed seeds to the surface, it may, however, be necessary to loosen up severely compacted soil.
