    While it's an excellent way to 'recycle', weeds will still be able to grow. In time, the newspaper breaks down into the soil and newer soil combines with the mulch to create a fertile environment. Regardless, this is an effective nonchemical approach to weed control. I just didn't want anyone to think it would resolve the problem forever and ever amen.
