Description

Weed-Free Gardening presents a clear and easy-to-implement plan of attack to get even the most tenacious weeds under control without the need for potentially harmful synthetic herbicides.
 
Let’s face it: weeding is far from a homeowner’s favorite chore. But not everyone can afford to hire a landscape crew to keep the weeds at bay, and spraying chemical herbicides isn’t a smart solution for eco-conscious homeowners or pet parents. If that’s the case for you, the weed control prevention and control strategies outlined here by author Tasha Greer will have you growing flowers, vegetables, shrubs, and trees with little to no weed competition. Tasha’s organic approach hands you methods for both preventing weeds early in the growing season and managing weedy intruders year-round.
 
By following the practical guidance found in Weed-Free Gardening, you’ll:
  • Control annual weeds by disrupting their natural lifecycle
  • Learn the whys, hows, and whens of weed-inhibiting mulching techniques
  • Eliminate deep-rooted perennial weeds by eradicating them at their source
  • Meet the best and most effective weeding tools available to homeowners
  • Discover many ways to keep weeds out of the vegetable garden while ensuring healthy and productive soil
  • Implement a practical plan to gain long-term control over weeds
In addition, you’ll find resources for weed identification, tips for getting rid of invasive plants, useful ideas for handling areas completely overtaken by weeds, and dozens of “weed hacks” to make life in the garden so much more beautiful.

Weed-Free Gardening is here with a plan to save you time, money, and energy, and help you fall in love with your garden all over again. If landscape beds overrun with weeds are making you want to give up on your garden, hope is finally here!
 

The author

Tasha Greer is an “epicurean homesteader” and writer focused on simple, sustainable living. She is a contributor to Mother Earth News, The Grow Network, Grit, and Morning Chores. She’s also the host of a video educational series on The Grow Network that includes videos on raising backyard chickens and ducks, in addition to a series on raising goats. A former Washington, DC, legal administrator turned full-time homesteader and writer, Tasha’s obsession with great food, gardening, and simple living led her to homestead in beautiful Surry County, North Carolina. There she raises goats, chickens, ducks, worms, and more on a 10-acre property with lots of help from her partner in good living, Matt Miles.

About 1.5 acres of her homestead is also covered with fruit trees and bushes, nuts, a personal vineyard, perennial vegetables, herbs, spices, annual vegetables, and some aquaculture. She uses hand tools, organic matter, and a mix of permaculture, edible landscaping, ecological, and traditional gardening techniques to grow abundant food and natural beauty.

Tasha volunteers with gardening organizations in her community and teaches classes related to edible landscaping and organic gardening. In addition, Tasha is a former market farmer, specializing in growing and selling herbs, spices, and mushrooms.
