Good morning. I am looking for some help in starting a vegetable garden in my backyard and I know almost nothing about gardening.
I just removed a portion of grass and weeds in my backyard. The space is approx. 10 x 17 because I thought it would be better to start small. I did this with a shovel and although I did a pretty good job their seems to be alot of stuff left over.
I guess my first question is what is a tiller and should I rent one? also I have read that black plastic mulch will stop the weeds from growing back. Should this be my next step?
Another question I have is about my dog. Do I have to enclose the garden in a fence? or what would be a good solution to control her as she has full use of the yard right now?
These are just a couple of the questions that I'm sure to shoot your way.
Can you help me?
