Our garden has an area with lots of weeds. We want to use this area to extend our garden with more beds. We are using a black tarp to cover them. These tarps are gonna help kill them because it causes a lack of sunlight and rain. We are using the tarp because of the effects of a pesticide. The reason we don’t use pesticide is because we have an organic garden. Using pesticides could get on other plants and kill them as well. It can also be difficult to control. By using the black tarp we are staying organic and can kill a large area of the weeds. So far the tarp has been working well, the weeds are brown and dried up.
