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.
Charlotte NC USA
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.
