Sustainable Saturday: Newspaper Weed Guard

I few months ago I explained how you can repurpose cardboard boxes into weed guard and grass killer. Now I’m here to share that you can also repurpose old newspapers as weed guard!

I get newspapers delivered every week that were from the previous owner. For the longest time I would just gather them up and recyclable them. However, I started laying some down in and around my gardens to prevent weeds. I love it because it works and the paper will eventually decompose. It’s a win win between reusing and allowing for quick, natural decomposition!
