Hello Dinu!
My goodness your garden is absolutely gorgeous! What zone are you in? I live in Indiana and I am just now preparing my soil to plant my flower garden this year. I got the mantis which is really great but I'm afraid there's just no getting every rock out the dirt:( But the good part is that I did get the weeds under control.
I'm going to use newspaper as a land fabric for future weeds. It's fiercly windy sometime here in the country and I want to put a good topping of bark or something to cover the newspaper that will not easily blow away with the wind. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm not too sure about the newspaper technique since I have no experience in this. I'm somewhere between zone 9-11 here in India. I keep pulling out the weeds as and when I seen them.
