    QUESTION #7: Using Woodchips for paths

    I'm creating some walking paths through my woodlands with woodchips. I had heard or
    read somewhere that several layers of newspapers under the woodchips will help keep
    weeds from sprouting up. Other recommendations say forget the newspaper and just make
    sure the woodchip are layers to a depth of four inches. Anyone else have experience
    and/or tips that can share?
