Our cardboard garden!

In our vegetable garden we had a huge problem! We were sick of pulling out weeds every time we had an Enviro Schools session. 
So this year we have decided to put cardboard down on top our garden as a natural weed mat. 
This was a good idea because cardboard can disintegrate and unlike plastic it will not affect the environment. 
We have cut holes in the cardboard where we have planted our plants and put stepping stones down to stand on and to prevent the cardboard from blowing away.  
We change our cardboard regularly throughout the term and so far we have had no problems with weeds yet!
