Great tips midwesternerr. With one layer my grass finds it's way to the surface. It is amazing how aggressive it is. I planted my veggie garden in an area I had covered with cardboard and leaves. I should have removed more leaves where I planted the veggie seeds because they stayed too moist and rotted. The seeds I planted later after I removed most of the leaves did much better.
