GrammaMary says, “Little helper planting beans. Note the heavy duty landscape fabric between double rows. Use as is, not mulched over. Fabric can be reused for several years.
My neighbors have reused this for years. At Sam club. 4×250 foot roll for $29.99. Well worth saving my back. In a drought, low rain area time I would use black plastic bumped up in the center to divert rain to the plants and not water the middle walkway.”
And I use roofing shingles in much the same way to keep down the weeds between rows. Bev
