Want to weed, mulch and naturally fertilize your garden in just seconds? Use newspaper. Take sheets of black and white newspaper and place them directly on top of weeds, then soak them down with the hose. The paper will block the sun and choke out the weeds, and over time it will degrade into beneficial mulch. You’ll be left with a perfectly plantable patch of land for your spring flowers, veggies or whatever you want to plant, all without the use of any chemical herbicides.
