Last year I decided to extend this flower bed by a couple of feet. Before the grass starts growing I am going to do a gardening trick to prevent grass that was there from growing anymore in this space! You might think that you need to cut and pull out the sod here but there is a much easier way!
To kill the grass and prevent it from coming up later in the season you cover the grass with newspaper and then cover the newspaper with top soil and mulch. Was able to clean up this bed in 15 minutes this morning instead of spending the entire day pulling out sod!
