Weed Control Experiment #2: Smother 'Em

The 'lawn' is full of creeping charlie with a smattering of dandelions and the occsional blade of grass.
Chatting with a co-worker at lunch the other day (the only reason I go to work is to learn new things), I remembered using newspaper to suppress weeds when we moved the sidewalk. So I spread some around in the experiment area.
A little soil thrown on top...
...and a liberal dose of grass seed and water.
I just have to wait a couple of weeks for the grass to grow. And no, I am not going to stand around watching.


  1. All kinds of experiments going on at your house! I'll be watching this one with great interest!

  2. Great idea, I'm sure it will work :)
