My definition:  Kill all the grass so I can plant food.

What you see here is me killing the grass.  It's a passive action on my part.  All I did was cut our two defective pool covers in half and spread them out.  Then I weighed them down.  Now I will wait for the sun to kill the grass and weeds and in the spring, I will take off the tarps and have nice brown grass and happy, warm dirt.

And it looks really nice in the meantime, all decorative and whatnot with those tarps. :)

To me, this seems like common sense.  But apparently it's quite a science:
and on and on.

Really, that just gets WAY more complicated than it needs to be.   Bottom line: you wanna kill grass?  Put down plastic.  The end.

Oh, and add chickens.

And old tires.

Because why not?  It looks nicer that way.

Yep, I do know that the tarps don't cover the whole area.  I will have to deal with some live grass in the spring. 


Ironically, as I was doing this yesterday, I realized that this garden is actually bigger than our house.
