Keeping weeds at bay in your garden can be quite a challenge, even for those with a green thumb. However, there’s a trick that not only enhances the colors of your garden but also makes it exceptionally tough for weeds to find a spot to grow.

The “trick” involves growing plants that can naturally prevent the growth of these pesky weeds.
