Every year when my husband starts cutting the grass I
place newspapers (about five pages thick) along the
gap between my raspberry rows and then pile up the newly cut grass to a height of about six inches. Eventually it rots down during the year but I always think it helps retain moisture along the rows and stops the weeds between the rows also. I have done it for years and I find it very successful.
