weeds growing through weed cover

kevin47 | Jun 26, 2012 07:09 PM

Tired of pulling crab grass and weeds for a couple of months every year before finally giving up and letting it win, I decided to use that black weed cover fabric, and just cut holes for my plants. Alas, everything is growing under the fabric, and is starting to pop up through it.

Is there any action I can take at this point? If I throw down newspapers and wet them, will that stop the growth? My plants are growing great, and I plan on yanking the fabric and replacing it next year.
