Mowing around sprawling pumpkins
Planning pumpkins in a new spot this year so they have plenty of space to sprawl out. Will they effectively shade the grass and prevent it from growing as they sprawl out? Or should I lay something down (garden fabric?) to keep the grass down? Am I overanalyzing this? I'm happy to let them take up as much space as they want, I'm just worried about growing monster grass and weeds as well since we can't really mow under the vines.
