I use a lot of newspapers but I am fighting grass. 
My lasagna bed stopped nut sedge for about 5 minutes! <LOL> The biggest 
problem I had was with the top soil.  It was much too sandy, and is, therefore, 
really dry.  The plants there, however, don't seem to mind and are much bigger 
than those in the bed next to it.  BTW, we got about 3" of snow this morning, 
but the temp never got below freezing, and nothing was hurt.  It's about 55 now.
