weed prevention in raised beds

9 years ago

Okay guys and gals here's my question(s). If I make a raised bed how do I prevent Bermuda, and ragweed from invading it. I have tried to smother it out with cardboard and newspaper under my mulch but it finds it's way through. Currently my garden is a plot about 25'x75' and it has taken me seven years of hand digging to get the Bermuda partially under control, but this year the ragweed is about to get the best of me and am wondering if raised beds would be the way to go. I am not a fan if chemicals but, if it would save my physical well being I may be swayed in that direction. Any ideas are welcome.
