I'm getting ready to plant a row of shrubs (mostly Nellie Stevens
Holly) along the fence in the back yard of my new home in Austin.
builder laid St. Augustine sod so I'm trying to decide whether I
should just make a small round bed for each shrub or just take out
the grass for the first few feet depth along the fence. We had a bed
like that in our old yard, and I hated pulling weeds all the time.
I'm thinking the grass will just die back naturally as the shrubs
over. Any thoughts?
Strip the sod away and make a bed. Trying to mow would be a chore with
individual circles to trim.
Mulch the bed with landscape fabric and mulch.
