This really works - we did it for our raised beds and regular garden, no weeds for two years!! The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric. (another pinner said)

Even if you have a small yard, you still design a small patio that will be functional for entertaining, relaxing, and living, as well as beautiful. Use these design ideas if you want turn a tiny place behind your house into something cozy and relaxing.
