Back to mulching , "small areas "of my garden I put gravel down , very effective 

I do agree use what you have got , particularly if it is cheap or better still free

At the allottment I use horse manure and shredding tree bits , although the the later is mainly for paths 

Have used bark Chipping's very effective at keeping weeds down and with a bit of bone meal in the Spring / Autumn , works well for me

I would give it a serious trim Now but cut back to main trunk , cutting into brown wood means no more growth and it can look really messy

Long term it should come out , wrong place but if not possible keep it well trimmed 

Best of luck
