Having a garden without weeding becomes a nightmare! Here’s How To Stop Weeding Forever


I love gardening, but it’s often a bit of a pain to keep your garden weed-free. I’ve tried all kinds of methods for keeping weeds at bay: tilling the soil every year, covering my garden with plastic, and even purchasing expensive seedlings from nurseries that are supposedly “weeds resistant”. None of these methods have worked very well! Then one day I saw an article about how some people were using 2 bags full of dirt as mulch instead of using plastic or hay. That really got me thinking…

Grow highly dense plants.

To help prevent weeds from growing in your garden, you should plant your plants densely. This means that the plants should be placed close together and there should not be any gaps between them.

When you have a small garden, you can plant on the edges of the bed where there is less chance of weeds growing. When you have a large garden, it’s best to create rows for planting at least six feet apart because this will allow plenty of space for weeding.

Only plant at the right time.

If you plant at the right time, there’s a better chance of your plants surviving. In general, it’s best to avoid planting seeds or young plants when the temperature is too cold or hot.

If you plant too early, they’ll likely get frost damage and may die before they can grow in spring. If you plant too late, they’ll be more susceptible to drought damage and could potentially not survive the winter at all.

It’s important to know what type of seedling you’re putting in so that it has an easier chance of growing into a strong plant during its first year!

Use your hands to weed, not a hoe.

Weeding is an essential part of gardening. It’s also a necessary evil that can be very time-consuming and tedious. If you want to stop weeding forever, there are several ways you can do it. One option is to use your hands instead of a hoe or other tool when weeding. Your hands are more effective at pulling out the roots of weeds than walking on the surface with a hoe or digging up their roots with tools like knives and trowels. The same goes for using forks and spades in place of hoes: they’re simply more efficient tools for getting rid of weeds!

Use mulch to defeat weeds.

Mulch is probably the best weeding tool you can use. It keeps the soil moist and cool, which prevents many weeds from growing. Mulch also helps keep the soil from drying out and getting too warm or cold.

Make your own homemade mulch tarp using plastic bags.

You can also create your own mulch tarp using plastic bags.

  • Take an old tarp and lay it down.
  • Then take the plastic bags, open them up and remove their contents. If they’re still wet, let them air dry before you use them in this project!
  • Using a staple gun, secure each bag to the tarp’s edges (you may have to overlap some of the bags). Try to keep them pinned in place so that they don’t move around too much when you place them on top of your garden bed or container plants. This will help prevent weeds from growing under your mulch tarp during its first few weeks while it takes root and begins to grow properly!

Practice deep watering techniques.

One of the best ways to help prevent weeds is to water deeply. In order to do this, it’s important that you choose a suitable watering method that will reach your plant’s roots and prevent them from drying out. There are plenty of ways to deep water with minimal effort including:

  • Soaker hoses or drip irrigation (they both allow for even distribution)
  • A watering wand or sprinkler (these can be used for small areas)
  • A watering can (you may need more than one if you’re looking to cover a large area)

If you have a rose in your garden and want an extra touch of class while keeping up with your weeding duties, try using a watering wand with a rose!

Pull out weeds by the roots, don’t just clip the stem or leaves.

Pulling weeds by the roots, not just clipping them at the top, is an effective way to get rid of weeds. The best time to pull a weed is when it is young and small. This will ensure that you don’t leave any parts behind for another seedling to grow from later on. If you’re pulling up a whole patch of weeds, start from the bottom and work your way up; this helps prevent breaking off roots which can be left in the ground, and reduces damage to surrounding plants or lawns.

Pulling out weeds by their roots is much more effective than simply removing them with a shovel or hoe because it kills them completely. If you leave even one root behind, that plant could easily sprout again somewhere else in your yard!

The best way to get rid of weeds is to prevent them from occurring in the first place!

The best way to get rid of weeds is to prevent them from occurring in the first place!

If you’re just starting out with a new garden or have been gardening for years, here are some tips that will help prevent weeds from taking over:

  • When planting your seeds, use peat moss or coconut fibre instead of soil. This will prevent the growth of unwanted plants. The organic matter also helps retain moisture and nutrients for better growth.
  • Dig up all perennial weeds during spring, before they flower and set seedlings that could grow into more weeds next year. If you don’t do this, it can take 10-20 years before these stubborn plants die out on their own!


Weeding is a necessary evil of gardening. It’s not fun, but it does not have to be a permanent part of your life either! If you follow these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to keep your garden weed-free without too much effort. You won’t even need those fancy chemicals!
