Re: Tired of fighting weeds and grass all these years


Use landscape cloth and not plastic sheet. It is available at commercial irrigation supply houses. It will last for many years. It is also sold as geotextile fabric. About $350 with the staples to cover a 4900 square foot area.

Compacting the soil with a rented commercial grade compactor also works wonders for eliminating plant growth. Think about old ranch trails that were compacted by farm trucks and 50 or more years later there is nothing growing there. Same with abandoned train railbeds and old logging roads.

Re: Tired of fighting weeds and grass all these years


I finally started working on this problem this morning. I rented a gas-powered string trimmer and cut the tall grass down as low as I could.


It's still in progress and discussed on another thread about using a lawn mower over desert landscape.
