Ginagibbs , I have shredded material for my paths but I have not bothered with a barrier cloth but I do use " path clear " weed clear and it had worked really well

Have to cut the lawns at home didn't want to do it at A

Dovefromabove is right , the only thing I would add is commercialisation has made these shows more professional and more accessible to everybody to see 

I will be watching again tonight , personally I miss Alan Titchmarch 

I like Monty but he does look a bit scruffy at times but that's his way
