    I would use black visqueen for the whole bed and cut out holes to plant roses lined with newspaper.

    Of course you would have to be careful with your watering......roses hate wet feet.

    Yeah, the drip we put in the bed helps with that. We've got some plastic in other flower beds, but never have done that in the roses.

    Roses have weak root system that doesn't develop far from the root ball(?). The plastic would keep those ugly weeds and grass down.

        That’s a good looking piece of property @Albert. Something tells me you’ve been doing this a while :). I’m guessing you grew up around farming?

        Thanks, it’s a highly productive piece of land. 6th generation so you could say that I’ve been around it a bunch. It’s not my first line of business (insurance agent), but I do love it, been my side hustle for the last 15 years.
        I did my undergrad in Ag business at what is now UL-Monroe and interned for a major Ag Chem manufacturer. When I graduated, farming was really depressed so I took a job with that company in their North Florida territory. Moved to G’Ville and took some grad courses along with working a sales territory from Quincy to Orlando. After three years I moved to West Palm Beach as the territory was realigned. Got to work the from Glades up the Indian River. After 3 years got to move back home to LA due to a merger. In all, I’ve got experience in over 50 different crop species.
        I got out of the Ag chem industry in 2016 to try something else, but I love this 220 acres I rent and operate. If I could get my hands on more land it’s all I would do.

          With a couple of showers lately and the evenings warming up, the wife’s roses are looking pretty good.

            One of the wife's favorites (didn't want there to be any misunderstanding!).

                    Actually, vertebrates don’t have the nerve receptor this stuff works on. So you’re gonna have to blame something else.

                      Blooming this morning...

                      Finally had a good shower late yesterday afternoon and the roses and garden plants really appreciate it. I keep everything watered and we’re on a deep well, but there’s nothing like the Good Lord’s water.

                      Roses have just a touch of black spot and I’m seeing a few holes in foliage in that bed and the garden. Put an application of Neem out. First time using it. Looking for good results.
