A few things you can do to prevent weeds from attacking is using the correct mulch and if possible burying a mesh layer underneath your soil a few inches down. These together can really help keep the weeds away for the entire season. For the ones that do get by, usually not many, you can pull them out by hand.

In fact, put a bunch of them in each of your garden beds. They will continuously aerate your soil and keep it loose while at the same time they will be creating their famous worm poo and automatically fertilize your soil.
