Happy Friday! I want to share an awesome trick I learned to control invasive yellow nutsedge and henbit. Those are two weeds that I was in an all out war with last spring.
This is what I started with when we purchased this house (that’s a real baby deer):
A whole garden of nutsedge and various other wild plants. I was spending hours every week pulling nutsedge. I didn’t have a life anymore. Time for some serious research. I read some articles that claimed pine bark mulch would reduce nutsedge by 80%. So I bought a bunch of bags and spread it out. It’s not the prettiest mulch. I don’t use it for my front landscaping. But glorious days! I was down to only spending a few minutes a week pulling nutsedge. It really does reduce nutsedge growth.
I hope this post helps those with weedy gardens.
