I've just found this horsetail in my front border, and it forced its way through the weed suppressant and bark chips I covered the ground with. There are also lots of smaller beige-y coloured mushrooms nearby, and when I lifted the membrane there were lots more underneath. The mole has tried to come up here, as there were mounds of soil in places, but it didn't manage to break through the membrane.
This front border is shady, and so far I haven't found any horsetail in the left border, which also has the membrane and bark chips and is sunnier.
The right border I can now plant up, also a sunny one, and I was going to just put bark chips on that, but the mole is now coming through that side, (as well as the lawn), so I was going to put membrane and bark chips there, to try and stop him breaking through that border.
Should I put membrane on the right side and remove it from the front, and just have bark chips on the front?
Any advice gratefully received.
