Use Straw Pellets to Keep Weeds Out of Your Garden

Introduction: Use Straw Pellets to Keep Weeds Out of Your Garden


In this instructable I explain how you can get easily weed out of your garden. We use straw pellets: small pellets made of straw that are normally found in horse stables. Advantages of straw pellets:

* Due to rain on the granules swell and form a continuous layer

* Weeds under low light and no grains have not come to germinate

* The pellets leave the water to precipitate

* Weed seeds that fall on the layer of granules and that germs do not get through the crust and die

* The low grain remains 12 to 18 months

* The color is dark brown and take on the color of dirt

Step 1: Buy Staw Pellets

Straw Pellets can buy some companies, for example:

* In Belgium at STROVAN

* In the UK at Straw Pellets Ltd.

So order the straw pellets but, usually you can use one bag for 4 square meters

Step 2: Spread the Straw Pellets Between the Plants

As the title says, you have to spread the straw pellets.

To do this, a layer of about 3cm thick. The layer will thicken, you can enjoy a weed-free garden

    Sounds like a great idea. I'm not familiar with straw pellets, but now I'll look for them.
