Conveyor belt keeps weeds at bay.
Because my husband is a soldier and a trucker, we're always looking for ways to cut corners on homesteading labor. We've found great uses for recycled conveyor belts. We use them to keep weeds out of the garden; we put them along our fence line so weeds don't grow up around the fence; and we cut them into pieces and use them as mulch to keep weeds away from our baby bushes and trees. They even direct rainwater straight to the plants we're trying to grow. Conveyor belts are heavy and sturdy, so riding a lawn mower over them is never an issue. You should give them a try.
