My cousins lifestyle block has several large flower gardens which are planted with many different species of perennial.

The weeds are hand pulled constantly. It’s basically a full time job for someone to hand pull them, and I’m wondering if anyone has a nifty trick to sort this out more permanently?

My cousin says that eventually you begin to win the war, and each year it is easier and easier, but I’m not seeing much change from last year when I helped them pull and cover with bark.

It literally took weeks to pull them last year, and honestly it seems like a futile effort to me.
