Do you think it would be okay to put landscaping fabrics over the tarp as well or would that be too much?

Kenny Sun says:

this technique can be only applied to smaller plants with shallow root balls. For larger ones, since you would have needed to dig a deeper hole, with this method you have to add more soil/compost on top of the plastic. Doing this will significantly change the slope of your yard and drainage conditions.

Shalu Sharma says:

Nice tips. However it would have been better if the lady had been saying and you would have been doing the digging.

Steph says:

Don't leave plastic in the ground! Plastic will prevent earthworms from working and aerating your soil and will prevent plants from sending roots where they need to. Plants will be stunted and soil underneath plastic will be a nasty, rotting mess. You'll be finding chunks of broken plastic in your flower bed for YEARS! Use cardboard or newspaper if you want to leave a barrier down. NO PLASTIC!

Faye Wren says:

Do you really have to put plastic or anything under the mulch? Because I didn't but I haven't plant nothing there yet.

And I just had a tree cut down and the stump removal, they bump the stump so that's what I am using for mulch.

I want to know what can of hege I can use right in front of the house coming into the house because I have a window that is low at the from of the house.
I don't want anything that is going grow to tall because of the window and I get a lot of sun there. Please respond it will be appreciated because I need HELP.

This looked very professional until the end, when the area looked bare. I was hoping to see how the pros make the areas look so full and rich.
