This slide show demonstrates how to remove your lawn using sheet mulching techniques.
Find out about everything you will need to successfully sheet mulch your lawn.
How much cardboard, compost and mulch will it take to cover your lawn? Learn how to measure and calculate so that you can order the right amount of materials.
Some invasive weeds are difficult to sheet mulch over and should be removed by hand. Examples include ivy, blackberry, oxalis, Bermuda Grass, and dandelion.
Learn how to dig a trench around the edge of your lawn so that the mulch stays in your yard and doesn't spill onto the sidewalk.
Plant 5-gallon and larger plants before installing the sheet mulch layers.
Cardboard will smother your grass and act as a weed barrier while it gradually decomposes. You can either use salvaged boxes or buy rolls of "B Flute" cardboard.
Compost builds healthy soil and provides a medium for plants. Learn how to put compost on top of the cardboard layer.
