Hi Kevin! I love the newspaper over weeds idea.
My question: In addition to getting rid of the weeds, I need to add soil to my garden. Would it make sense to put the 10 layers of newspaper down over the weeds, put the new soil on top, and then the 3 inches of mulch? I’ve considered putting the soil down first, but it just seems counter intuitive to be providing nasty weeds with good soil.
Or should I be putting down the 10 layers, then soil, then a bit more newspaper, then mulch. All the possibilities…
