I can grow Johnson grass like no other. I don't believe I will ever get rid of it. Johnson grass only appears in the garden...no where else on the place. Suggestions?

Rip the heads off before they seed, get a small spray bottle and put gly in it. Use it to spot spray when it comes back.

Probably the greatest thread in THF history.

Play Maker, you also need to pull all the Johnson grass you see, it may take awhile but unless you keep pulling it will keep coming back.

I am contemplating hauling in several loads of top soil/manure to elevate the 70' x 75' garden area. As stated earlier, Johnson grass is a burdensome issue. On the other hand, the topsoil might contain unknown seeds within it which may cause other problems. An alternative to bringing in topsoil might be building large boxes, beds, to elevate the garden area.

I use a tarp to cover my garden. It's black but clear is recommended. Put it on after your garden is done in the summer.

It will burn the weed seeds and kill them. You want at least 6 mil thick, you can get it from Lowes or Home depot.

I got so tired of hoeing weeds, I put the garden fabric you see in the first post so I would not have to weed any more. It works my chop hoe is rusting out.

If you go the garden fabric way. Overlap the fabric and throw some much in between the rows so the wind doesn't rip it apart. When you go to plant cut an X in the fabric then push the corners under. When the plants start to grow bring the four "corners" up and they will rest on the stem.

I have a mushroom farm close to me. I'm getting four yards a year to get my garden above the ground. You can buy it for 10 dollars a yard. It is full of nitrogen and when you till it in it smokes. My plants this year were amazing.

I've thought about the garden fabric/tarp, but thankfully, there are people around my other house that put out huge bags of leaves each year...I hope they do again this year. grin I put about 40 of those insulation size bags of leaves in between the rows, plus leaves from my own place, to keep out the weeds. Till them in during the winter and they add carbon to the soil which has to be counteracted with a bit of nitrogen.

LSS, that's a goldmine. I have the leaves but I'm surround by pastures so all kinds of seeds fly in, had them growing on bare fabric.

Awesome garden there, I got away from that big one and now I only have (4) 4x4 boxes that I deal with, makes it easy to weed, water, and they make awesome green houses in the winter.
