Weed control

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 09:39
sometimes if you have a look at the weeds on membrane they started on the surface, although some cheap membranes are rubbish the others do work pretty well, lots of seed blow onto the chips it happens to everybody the trick is little and often dont make it a chore, and buy good membrane we bought a really good heavy one but we still get top weeds that just pull out very easily
good luck Alan
