Landscape Weed Barrier Fabric. Does it work?

How to grow A Weed-Free Vegetable Garden. I think you'll find it useful.
A Weed Free Vegetable Garden!

My neighbor Richard is awesome and he let me use his garden for this presentation. Last fall I helped Richard pack his garden with donkey manure and other compost from my compost pile.

We put at least two or three ton of manure and compost into his garden. Then I tilled it in with the big tiller on my tractor. I tilled it once in the fall and at least twice if not three times this spring before he planted.

The soil was beautiful!
But along with beautiful soil come weeds and lots of them. Richard did something really, really smart. He used the same nursery ground cover cloth that we use in the nursery to place our containers on. He rolled it out and completely covered his garden with this ground cover fabric.

No, not the cheap stuff you can buy at the stores!
It’s what we use in the nursery. Just search for nursery ground cover cloth and buy the heaviest, most pricey one you see. Hint, hint, you’ll probably find it on Amazon.

Richard covered his garden completely anchoring the ground cover down the staples that they sell with the product.

Then he did something else really smart!
He started his vegetable plants in pots so they were nice and big before he moved them into the garden. To plant them he simply cut a slit in the ground cover material and planted through the ground cover cloth.

Presto! The plants took off growing like crazy! The ground cover cloth actually helps to trap in some moisture and at the same time keeps the weeds from growing. As you’ll see in this video, his garden is beautiful!

Warning, warning, warning!
If you are thinking; “Wow! This stuff works great, I think I’ll use it in my landscape.” Know that I am warning you now. If you put topsoil or mulch over the top of this fabric it is not going to work like you think it will.

Eventually it will become the most disastrous weed fest imaginable!
Trust me on this. Any kind of weed barrier fabric covered with soil or mulch will grow weeds and the weeds will root through the fabric and it will be next to impossible to pull up the fabric because the weeds will have it anchored down. It turns into the biggest mess you can imagine.

Watch this video to see what I mean;

And there was no soil on the fabric! But the weed seeds blew in and germinated on top of the fabric then rooted into the soil below the fabric.

Here’s the problem.
When you mulch over weed barrier fabric the mulch breaks down and eventually becomes beautiful topsoil.

Weeds grow perfectly in beautiful topsoil! But when that happens on top of weed barrier fabric the weeds actually knit the fabric to the ground and cleaning up that mess is more work than you can imagine.

I’ve done it way too many times to count when I was re-landscaping homes. I don’t make this stuff up! Everything that I write or share is based on my real world experience crawling around in the dirt on my hands and knees.

You can take advice from me, or you can listen to those who quite simply lack real world experience.

See more photos etc. here; https://mikesbackyardnursery.com/2012/06/weed-barrier-fabric-or-weed-barrier-cloth-does-it-work/

This video is proof that the best weed barrier fabric cannot stop weeds from sowing. For more evidence that you really need to re-think using weed barrier fa...

[02/23/19]   How to Use Cornmeal to Attract Earthworms to Your Garden.

Think of earthworms as your loyal coworkers when working a garden. Their castings add nutrient-rich, organic matter to the soil. As they tunnel through the dirt, they create space for air and water to reach the roots. They also loosen dense soils so roots have an easier time moving through them as they grow. And the increased amount of organic material that earthworms add to the soil improves the soil's ability to hold water. Adding a little organic matter, or worm food, to your soil can attract earthworms to your garden and encourage them to mate. Cornmeal is an affordable way to feed worms and get them to call your garden home.

Start attracting earthworms to your garden in the spring as the soil warms.

Sprinkle 1 to 2 pounds of cornmeal over roughly 18 square feet of garden space. Eyeball it so you have a dusting just heavy enough to cover the soil surface.

Mix the cornmeal into the top 3 inches of garden soil with a shovel.

Water the area so the soil remains consistently moist but not wet. Avoid wet, soggy soils as excess water drowns out the worms. Monitor soil moisture closely because dry soil dries out earthworms.

Wait one month for the garden to produce enough bacteria and attract enough worms to process the cornmeal you added and will be adding in the future.

Resume feeding by adding 1 to 2 pounds of cornmeal about every two weeks.

Monitor your garden periodically for an increase in earthworm activity, both from earthworms that you've attracted to your garden and from their offspring. If you're not seeing much new activity, add live worms from a bait shop, from someone who raises earthworms or those that you've dug up yourself from an alternate location. Gently cover the worms with a little moist soil to keep them from drying out before they make their way into the soil.

Things You Will Need
The Clemson University Extension recommends mixing the cornmeal with lard or shortening. which is optional. Many people who raise earthworms also add kitchen waste, such as vegetable and meat scraps. If you're simply trying to increase the numbers of earthworms in your garden, adding the cornmeal should do the trick. Adding additional scraps could attract animals, garden pests and unwanted bacteria or fungi. It can also cause foul, rotting-food odors.

Clam Shell Air Propagator

Air propagation basics... this is really cool.

If you've never heard of air propagation before, you're about to be AMAZED!

I made a fifteen minute video explaining the basics of air propagation. Long story short... you can propagate a plant (or tree) without removing a cutting from the parent plant.

You'll just have to watch the video to see what I mean.


It's really, really cool! Enjoy!

By all means, stay inspired!

Striking Deep purple foliage. Will reach 10 feet tall in one season. Fast growing hedge.
Perfect for a natural screen. Possibly a mole repellent.
Seeds and plants are poisonous. Plant with care around children and pets.

You are buying 5 DEEP PURPLE (some sites even call these 'Black') Castor Bean Plant Seeds, (Ricinus communis), plus planting and growing instructions. A fast growing plant that adds an exotic and tropical flair to any landscape. Usually grown as an annual, the Castor Bean plant may reach 8-10 feet in height or more by the end of the summer. They will get big! These UNUSUAL DEEP PURPLE Castor Bean plants have very small flowers, but very LARGE and attractive DEEP PURPLE seed pods along with purple leaves and purple stalks - they make a STRIKING hedge or specimen plants. How great would these look as a privacy hedge around your pool or deck? Extremely easy to grow – loves full sun and average, well draining soil. Some organic gardening sites claim that castor bean plants help repel moles from your landscape (castor bean oil is often used in commercial mole repellents), however other sites say there is no research to substantiate that claim – but, heck – it can’t hurt to try it and you’ll amaze your neighbors with this fast growing, tropical plant! In zones 9-11, it may be grown as a perennial, where it can grow to the size of a small tree (15+ feet) grow as an annual in colder zones. Seeds and plant are HIGHLY POISONOUS if ingested and should not be planted within reach of children and pets.

Zea Mays. Japanese / Aztec corn. Seeds now available in my shop.

Annual heirloom drought-resistant corn grown for decoration or for grinding into corn meal, making highly nutritious and tasty blue corn bread. There is really nothing like growing your own cornbread. When we made our harvest, a number of the ears were immature (white kernals) and these we sliced off with a knife and put in a pot of water and simmered overnight. In the morning, we ate this corn porridge and it was absolutely wonderful!
