I totally agree about not using carpet. It seems very popular on my allotment site, but I am still digging it up! We put down some systemic weedkiller last year to try to kill the brambles and I only now realise why they had not been killed off. It had to get through carpet (under grass and brambles) which had obviously been there for years and years! I used black plastic over the winter on my raised beds to suppress the weeds and this has been very effective.
I'm in a quandry now!!! Putting down carpet along the paths was going to be my Easter holiday job tomorrow!!! We have a lovely school garden, and a side "leg" that we have cultivated as an allotment, with 2 greenhouses, a long raised vegetable bed, a smaller raised herb bed and 2 compost bins, along with fruit trees/canes etc. The paths around the raised beds are slightly sloped, muddy and slippery, and our cookery students (bringing peelings after their lesson for the compost heap) have been complaining!!!

I felt that carpet and bark chippings would do a great job, whilst also keeping the brambles and stingers that used to live in the area at bay. I wonder what to do now!!! Perhaps, as per previous postings, I should try it for a year and see how we go. I suppose I won't be cultivating the paths, so I won't be needing to remove the carpets in the future.

As a separate piece of info, this weekend I removed some weed-suppressing-membrane from my home garden that has been in situ for 8 years under my son's climbing frame. This has not disintegrated or torn, and I will be using it in the school garden with the carpet. It certainly worked 100% as I originally laid it directly on top of lawn, grass & dandelions to boot. Nothing came through, and it did not get waterlogged at all. Perhaps this is the answer to my own question!!!!

On our allotment we have been told that the council has banned the use of carpet to suppress weeds as it is a possible environmental hazard. I don't know how valid this is.
