Weed Prevention – Five Ways to a Weed Free Organic Garden

If you prepare and take care of your organic garden in the right way, you will most certainly need weed prevention. Well, if you enrich the soil in your garden with all kinds of nutrients and organic matter to enhance the soil structure, you do not only create good conditions for your vegetables and flowers but for the weeds as well!

You can find Green-It Corn Gluten Weed Preventer that helps in organic weed control for your lawn and garden. There are a few different ways to avoid your desired plants getting suffocated by the unwanted ones.

  • First, when you prepare your soil, make sure you may also remove all the perennial weeds such as dandelion, horsetail, and thistle. Don't think they will die when you bury them in the soil, they won't!

  • Second, when winter is over (if you have winter where you live) hurry out into your garden and remove the first tiny weed plants. That will save you a lot of work later on.

  • Third, loosen the soil between the plants in your vegetable and flower beds once in a while, which will disturb the sprouting weeds and prevent them from growing.

  • Fourth, and this is my personal favorite, cover the soil in your beds, between your growing vegetables and flowers. This will have multiple positive effects. And furthermore, if you use for example grass, straw, or another vegetable residue, it will add nutrients to the soil as the cover decomposes.

  • Fifth, and last, you can cover your crop with a fiber cloth, but you have to do that right from the start when you sow your plants. If you wait many weed seeds will have landed on the soil and will germinate and grow quite well under the cloth!

This method also has other benefits than weed prevention, because it will create a greenhouse-like environment for your precious plants, as well as keeping a number of pests away from them.
