THE NEWSPAPER WILL PREVENT ANY GRASS AND WEED SEEDS FROM GERMINATING, BUT UNLIKE FABRIC, IT WILL DECOMPOSE AFTER ABOUT 18 MONTHS. BY THAT TIME, ANY GRASS AND WEED SEEDS THAT WERE PRESENT IN THE SOIL ON PLANTING WILL BE DEAD. ITS GREEN, ITS CHEAPER THAN FABRIC, AND WHEN YOU DECIDE TO REMOVE OR REDESIGN THE BED LATER ON, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE HEADACHE YOU WOULD WITH FABRIC.
Dave Pederson design: "A narrow side yard can indeed look interesting. This modern home didn't have much room so Dave used Sanseiveria to add interest to the concrete walls of the home and perimeter wall. The repetition of the Sanseiveria, the stones, and the poured in place pads add texture and interest to the modern architecture of the home. Horst Arch."
