This summer, I'm thinking of using the invasive mugwort and Japanese knotweed themselves to cover the cardboard. If I get them cut back now, it will be before they go to seed, so no danger of introducing seeds to the area. I like the idea of using the non-native biomass to smother areas for my native plantings. Put them to good use.
