5 Tips to Keep Weeds Out Of Your Garden

Struggling with a weed-filled garden? Use these 5 tips to keep weeds from taking over your garden

No Invasive Plants

That pretty flower you thought would be perfect for the garden may well be an invasive “weed” that will take over if you let it.


Compost, mulch, soil, hay and other amendments can bring in weed seeds, so check the source of the material carefully.

Avoid Tilling Or Double-Digging

The more you disturb the soil, the more weed seeds will come to the surface and sprout.



Cut off seedheads of weeds before they open, even better when they are still flowers.


Avoid cutting any roots of perennial weeds into smaller bits as each one will spread even more.
