Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: Planning a new bed in the spring? Now is a great time to kill the weeds and undergrowth. Mark your spot and cut down all of the vegetation in your new bed. Cover the ground with black plastic and anchor the edges with boards or stones. The plastic with block the sunlight and heat up the soil killing most of the roots below. In the spring, remove plastic and turn the soil with a spade.
