I am about to top up a garden with new soil to create a succulent garden. I

before I top soil I would like to cover with newspaper for weed control for weed control, should it be before or after topping up. Thank you.

Hi Lee,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

We recommend doing the soil top dressing first before placing the newspaper on the new soil. You could try to use some pine bark or bricks to hold the newspaper down. 


Hope this helps and please do not hesitate to contact us again should you have any other query. 

Happy gardening.
Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
