I have weed suppressing membrane at the far end of the garden around the raised veg bed. The membrane is now 13 years old and still working; the weeds that self seed into the pea shingle on top are very easy to pull up/hoe.

Ant 5, welcome and what a great project. A lot of the weeds will have given up after being covered in plastic and now you should schedule for a couple of hours each week, as this is the growing season to go round with a dandelion fork, digging up weeds as you see them. You can post pics on this forum if in doubt about what plant is what Would be useful to have a pic of whole garden; perhaps from an upstairs window?
