Question: How can I stop weeds in my landscape beds this spring? Last year I spent most of the summer weeding and I don’t want to do that again.
Answer: Limit tilling of the soils in your landscape beds in Warsaw, In and Syracuse, IN to once a year at most. Lightly rake instead. Only disturb the soils where you will be planting things. Use a pre-emergent herbicide in your landscaping to help control weeds. Then follow up with a generous layer of mulch.
Landscaping requires attention throughout the season. You can’t put off maintaining your landscaping if you live in Warsaw or Syracuse. It will take time to maintain.
