Sunny bed weeded, chard seedlings weeded and watered, half the veg patch hoed everything watered and OH was kind and tidied and put everything away for me. I have no fingernails left ...
It's probably mycelium from some sort of fungi ... does it smell mushroomy? We get it in some areas of the garden ... it seems to be in areas where there were once some decayed tree roots. It's not causing any problem to the plants or grass
Back 'lawn' mowed and edged ... I left a patch of longer grass and daisies around the pond
Now I'm indoors for a lovely herby omelette and another then I'll be on my hands and knees out there weeding the baby chard. There's a lot of chickweed germinated around it ...

Chicky ... that's absolutely gorgeous
Front lawn mowed and edged and some supports put in for the lupins which are nearly flowering! They snuck up on me ... hadn't noticed how quickly they were growing.
Now a quick
then it's the grass at the back to do ........ I might leave some patches for the daisies ...
Then the best and kindest thing to do if you need to be rid of it, is to find someone who knows how to dispatch it humanely.

Another problem with steel is that in the sunshine it heats up and could 'cook' the roots of whatever is planted in there.
You can grow fruit trees in large pots, if you get the right sort of tree on the right rootstock.

It's up to you of course, but I'd think twice about it unless you've got at least a couple of acres ... we get loads of queries asking how to control or get rid of it ... it's a real thug in 'normal gardens'.
