Re: Re: Re: Using newspapers

Checking in from Charlotte, NC, I have successfully used newspaper under deep 
(10cm/4in +) chipped wood mulch to smother lawn for veggie and perennial 
beds. After 12 months, the paper is largely gone.

Zone 8a, >1000 mm/yr (>40 in) rainfall, summer temps in the mid-30s C (90s + 

PS. This can shade out limited Bermuda, BUT, cover well with newsprint and 
mulch deeply, and if you can let that area dry completely. It will take a 
year, but gives fair control.
