Secondly, if you are willing to invest the money required to create a square-foot gardening and a weed-free wonderland, go for it.  The downsides are not only cost, but lack of air circulation, need for more watering, and if wood is used to make the raised beds it will eventually rot and have to be replaced. Here is a brief list and description of the top ten weeds you will encounter in your veggie patch and ideas on eradication.  If you are looking for a quick and easy solution other than chemical annihilation, STOP reading at this point because it will take a determination and a will to succeed that cause most people to either cover their gardens with grass seed or put in that in-ground pool they thought they always needed.
In our comprehensive Worst Garden Weeds Survey, gardeners rated several mulch types and organic herbicides based on their effectiveness in controlling weeds. The tips most often cited were to do a couple of good hand weeding sessions early in the growing season before laying down mulch, and to keep reapplying organic mulches as they decompose throughout the season. Many respondents commented that black plastic mulch is effective because it blocks light from weeds, but it can leave a mess of fragments in your garden when it eventually deteriorates. Glysphate (Roundup) is a harmless as anything in the home and degrades to nothing in less than 2 weeks.
Biannual weed such as Burdock cannot be dug out with reasonable effort but cutting the seed head off in the second year prevents more of the bastards. I do agree with you on your point about how if you are in a survival situation that its best to pick your battles. However, I disagree with you that Roundup is harmless and landscape fabric is 100% effective at stopping weeds.
Wood chips break down but if you use wood chips and landscape fabric both early in the season, you may not have to worry about weeds for the first year, but this isn’t a long term solution. If we have a survival situation, wood chips and landscape fabric might be extremely hard to come by.

One positive aspect of chickweed is that you can feed it to your ducks and chickens, they will love it.


Out of those who’d tried each type, here’s how the methods ranked, including the percentage of respondents who found each effective. Grass clippings will block weed growth better than the same thickness of hay or straw, but will usually not last as long. Others noted the usefulness of landscape fabric laid beneath a layer of straw for keeping weeds out of paths. Almost all of the gardeners who commented on organic herbicides said the ones that work only offer a temporary fix. For example, if you are faced with starvation and eating processed food, I will take my chances eating processed food, probably very happily. Even if you take the large number of clinical trials that have shown a link to cancer in Glyphosate, and the fact that the entire EU has implemented a two year ban on pesticides and throw all of that out. I have spent hundreds of dollars on landscape fabric and this never guarantees you will have weed free areas. If only it was that simple, I would be very happy, but the home improvement stores wouldn’t sell as much. If your garden is new or if you are like me and have a year gone already for the weeds to strengthen you will have this problem. Plant the whole bed so it is full of plants–no rows or paths in the bed, just fill it with plants.

As you evaluate your mulch options, keep in mind that clear plastic — the lowest-ranking mulch type — will only work to kill weeds if it’s used in summer and pulled tightly over soil, creating a hot environment weeds can’t tolerate.
If I am dying of thirst, I won’t turn my nose up at water that has fluoride in it or that was stored in containers that may have BPA in them.
Do you really believe that spraying chemicals that are designed to kill anything on your food is the best idea?


You might have a reduction for the first year, but eventually grass and weeds grow through and over the landscape fabric.

This method of capturing radiant heat from the sun under clear plastic is often called solarization. Start your mulching regimen early, before weeds get a foothold, and don’t be shy about applying a lot — if you can, mulch 6 to 8 inches deep with hay, straw or leaves, or 2 to 3 inches deep with grass clippings. Many gardeners considered vinegar an effective herbicide option if applied directly to weeds on a sunny day.

Organic mulches are a quadruple win because they suppress weeds, build fertility, retain moisture and are often free.
If you’re cautious about protecting the soil food web in your garden, note that vinegar can do minor harm to soil microorganisms.
Dig a trench and bury the edges of the tightly pulled plastic in the trench so the heat will build up, and keep the plastic cover on the garden bed for three to six weeks. Simply gather grass clippings and leaves from your property, or get them from friends or neighbors who don’t use lawn herbicides.
