Our building deconstruction/renovation is having an impact on our community’s garden and it is worth sharing! Our old unusable carpet (large and small pieces!) is making a great weed barrier for garden walkways and edges. With all the rain we have been getting the weeds are running over everything else. (Notice I did not include a picture!) We put down strips of carpet, tacked it into place with old knitting needles and in a few short weeks the weeds are choked out but the moisture gets into the soil. Fabulous! Just think — using multiple colors and textures will add dimension and definition to your growing art form! And you can move the carpet for differing effects and crop rotation. We still need to weed but what a difference!
