We are applying techniques to our farm to recycle all weeds with a no till terms. The walkways are structured with a weed guard layer using shipping boxes to block weeds and tree mulch placed on top of the cardboard. The underground weeds are decomposing and being recycled for future crops. The cardboard will allow water and air to the under layer for composition.
The boxes that have ink labels on them are for walkways where there will be no vegetable crops. All vegetable beds have decomposed weeds from the last years mulch and weeds for a black soil component.
Another option is to use a weed guard paper that is very useful also. It is important to us to reduce our landfills and upgrade our farms terrain. Our raised beds have 1/3 weeds like foxtails and soil placed on top and within 3 months the under brush layer has turned into dirt.
