Cardboard in the Garden

Dusting off your gardening gloves? Before you head outside, bring your excess cardboard with you. Cardboard works as a natural weed barrier and can suppress weeds around the base of plants or under gravel, stone, or woodchip paths. This natural alternative to chemical weed controls has many benefits – it lasts a long time and allows some air and water through, which is healthy for the soil underneath.
