Also to know is, what should I put around my raised beds?
A couple layers of plastic sheeting followed by 3-4 inches of driveway gravel would probably do the trick. Organic matter and water in the paths (broken down mulch and run-off from the beds) is likely what is giving your weeds an ideal spot to grow.
Also Know, what do you put between garden rows? Low-nutrient loose, organic mulches, such as hardwood and softwood chips, sawdust, straw, dead leaves, bark chips and bark shreds, are suitable for spreading between vegetable rows. Spread a 2- to 5-inch layer of the mulch on bare soil, or place it on top of another weed-control material.
Just so, should I put landscape fabric under raised bed?
They will compete for water and nutrients with the plants you want to put in your raised bed. The landscape fabric will help keep them out but some roots may still find their way in. The depth of the soil in the raised bed should prevent weed seeds that are in the existing soil underneath from germinating.
Should I put rocks in the bottom of my raised garden bed?
Because many plants require well-draining soil, placing rocks in the bottom of a raised bed to create additional drainage space below the soil is a sensible step. Unlike soil, rocks will not degrade or compact over time.
