What could I put down that would kill the weeds for a year so the guy never has to spray around my place again?
Nothing will stop weeds growing for a year except plastic. Are you in some kind of homeowners assoc. or on a golf course or something.

Not a golf course but yes, someone else hires the grounds keepers. Nothing snooty I assure you!

Chuck - does your watering advise apply to my location too?
Many chillies are native to Mexico; think about conditions there.
Sweet peppers need more water. My rule of thumb is, if put your index finger into the soil, to the second joint, and it comes out dry, you need to water.

I overwinter 1 plant for 1 year because, although they produce less fruit in subsequent years, they produce earlier.
When the first year peppers fruit, I thank the overwintered plant, and let it go to plant heaven, as it's often not so good then.
