Weedless Gardening


Conventional wisdom says to garden from the bottom up, turning over the soil every spring until your back aches. Ironically, this does such a good job aerating that gardeners spend the rest of the season pulling weeds and replacing the suddenly energized (and easily used up) nutrients. Mother nature, on the other hand, gardens from the top down-layering undisturbed soil with leaves and other organic materials. In following this example and synthesizing the work of other perceptive gardeners, Le

    This book is a little smaller than I thought it was going to be but that’s alright because it’s got vital information in it that I wanted to know. Especially how to start a garden to be weedless. I was also interested in finding out how I could water just a little bit with the drip irrigation because I saw a segment of this on TV and it’s really awesome. This book tells me how to do my organic garden just the way mother nature would do it from the top down which is really an awesome concept. I don’t want to have to till every year and I don’t have to anymore after reading this book. This is great as a reference to find out everything I need to know about how to do this correctly and I had no idea until I saw this on TV and I ordered the book so I am very excited.

    I found this book honest and helpful. Finding information on mulching/composting as a long term way of controlling weeds is hard to find and this book provides a lot of helpful information. Dr. Reich has an effective and easy to apply method for controlling weeds in a garden bed. Controlling Bermuda grass (quack grass) at the edges of my beds is an on going struggle for which I do not have a good solution (pulling weeds is quite labor intensive and needs to be repeated often). Hopefully this book will get an update with newer research findings in this area. I highly recommend this book.

    People never believe me when I tell them that I spend almost no time weeding my gardens because I have no weeds to deal with. I’ve been following a variation of this method for years, and Dr. Reich does a fantastic job explaining the methods he uses.

    I would have loved to see more information about his watering methods (eg, how many drip lines per row), but he provides so much great instruction that I recommend this book to anyone tending a garden almost any size.
