How do you keep weeds out of the garden?

How do you feel about digging up weeds? That’s one way.
Mulching is another. It’s really effective at reducing the weeds in flower beds. Avoid using a tiller if possible. It will just bring weed seeds to surface and cause a real mess. Applying a pre-emergent in the spring and again during the season will help keep new weeds from popping up in beds. After putting down the pre-emergent each spring, put down a thin layer of mulch. Less time weeding will give you more time to sit on a bench and enjoy the flowers!
