    My husband had built me some raised beds to garden in. They are only 12 inches tall. but allow me to stoop and garden easier. We had placed straw between the raised beds to create a tidy walkway and to eliminate the weeding between beds. However, the straw produced its own "weeds" and I was disappointed. Is there something that should be done to not have that happen again? Please advise.

    Maybe your straw was more hay than straw....

    Thanks for the ideas. Its also great to see the results such a great garden!
    To answer the last post, I have raised beds too and we put a thick layer of gravel between them. Sowing a lawn also worked but we had to mow it so we changed for the labour free option.

    what about grass/lawn clippings...
    what to do with lawn clippings? use it as ground cover between your rows and around your plants...they help prevent weeds from growing and also it helps to retain moisture and serves as fertilizer for future garden's
