I live in NC (Zone 7b) and have a small veggie garden. (21'x42'). It seems
like I spend most of my time pulling envasive Burmuda Grass. It doesn't
start growing actively until after my garden is up and growing. Can anyone
tell me of a barrier to keep it out? I hear RR ties have chemicals thar
aren't good for the garden. Any Ideas?
I use cedar logs, or whatever other logs I have available. My garden
is on a slope and this helps divert washing rainwater around the
garden. Also, this makes a good place to fasten the bottom of a
fence, if you have one.
I lay cardboard on the beds, and punch holes where I need to plant.
is gone in a few months here in MI. When I buy something I always save
the box. In NC, you may want to add extra layers of newspapers or
other slowly degrading material. Leaves or woodchips are less
effective with these invasive grasses as they can push their way
through. Thickly matted leaves which have not yet decomposed work
also. Whatever can prevent the grass from emerging.
