      Just finished tucking my garden to bed with my new Silage Tarp!

      What a game changer. Every year, I have tried things like straw or cover crops to cover my garden bed, to keep the weeds out. Killing the weed seeds before I plant, is wonderful. Already, the heat from under the tarp is gathering. If you touch the top of the tarp right now, you can feel the warmth. I am already excited about next year's garden.

      Made in the shade

      Works very well as a total shade block for our patio and for covering idle plots.
