Put the newspaper over the dirt 3-4 pages thick and then covered it with mulch. The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. Its green, its cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.

Once all the pieces were dry it was time to assemble! We turned our turtle onto its back and with pva glue we glued them into place. Next we taped them all down .We filled in between the limbs with more scrunched up news paper to make a slightly rounded under side to the shell and then paper mache'd over them all to hold it all firmly into place!.....this took a few more days to dry........

The making of our giant sea turtle with an eco friendly twist!
