Get rid of Weeds the Easy Way

Weeding your garden needn’t be a nightmare. Make a few changes to the way that you garden and you’ll be able to spend far less time weeding, and more time appreciating the beauty of the plants around you.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Avoid digging up your garden beds unnecessarily, as weed seeds brought to the surface are more likely to germinate due to exposure to light and water.
  • Mulch garden beds thickly to smother weeds and prevent light from reaching weed seeds. You can also try laying down mulch matting, which lets in water but restricts the growth of weeds.
  • Hoe out weeds while they are still young and easy to remove. If you remove them before they form seeds they can simply be left in garden beds to wilt in the sun.
  • Always use weed-free compost from a reputable source. At Stodels we guarantee the quality of our weed-free compost – put us to the test!
