Roofing Your Garden

Last year our garden had weeds growing between the boxes. A thick covering of shredded trees (wood chips) looked good, but didn’t do a thing for keeping the weeds under control. It’s just nice to have no weeds, but wedding the walk-ways seems too much. 

As it came to be, a shed needed new shingles. This generates waste – the old shingles! Rather than just toss these out, how about roofing the garden or walk-ways?

Last years wood chips were pulled aside, the old shingles laid down, and the chips et al back on top. This should keep the weeds down and make the garden look much better, without more weeding for a long time.
