Sheet Mulching

Sheet mulching is a natural process which allows you to kill a weedy old lawn or tired garden area
and replace it with good quality soil for planting native plants. The best 
time to start your sheet mulching is in early winter just before the winter rains. The 
process takes between 3-4 months depending on your situation. The process is not 
difficult, and the initial start of sheet mulching can easily be done in one day (depending 
on the size of your old lawn or garden area.)
