Last year I wrote an article titled A Garden Made Simple that concentrated on rollout gardens, where a roll of seeded material could simply be rolled out, watered, and produce plants. Rollouts are available for both vegetable and flowering plants. Well, as often happens, a new concept has built on this and gone to the next level.
How can there be an easier garden than roll it out and water? Well, the next level includes a mat that inhibits weed growth, and allows both air and water to pass through. Now, the simple to plant garden has gone so far as to become an easy to maintain garden. This is being touted as a benefit for those with little or no gardening experience, but I would add it is an advantage even for an experienced gardener with time constraints.
