    [align=left]Hello all.[/align]
    [align=left]I'm a beginner here so take it easy on me.[/align]
    [align=left]I have a question.[/align]
    [align=left]I have a sitting area and it has an Oak Tree by it.[/align]
    [align=left]I cleared an area/circle around the tree where I wanted to plant some Wildflowers and Poppy's to have something to look* at.[/align]
    [align=left]Is there anything I can lay down BEFORE planting, that will prevent wild grass/weeds from popping up between the plants?[/align]
    [align=left]I'd like to be able to enjoy looking at the flowers, than constantly pulling up weeds ect.
    If its any help I :[/align]
    [align=left]Live at an elevation of 3000'.
    The area gets alot of Sun.
    It snows about 8 days during the Winter
    Location is Northern California.[/align]
    [align=left]I guess I'm looking more for "Prep Tips" than "what to plant".[/align]
    [align=left]Thanks[/align]

    [align=left]- Nothing that I'm aware of.* Weeds are weeds.* Of course there is [/align]

    [align=left]I'm not a big fan in using weed blankets, but this product above would work.* You would of course have to cut holes to plant your perennials and shrubs.[/align]
