Weeds

Sorry for the delay. Eventually found the receipt with my son in law as I gave it to him when he was doing his driveway, as he bought the same stuff. The company is QVS and they suppplied us 4m wide weed control fabric for our driveway. The following link goes to the page showing the fabric to save you hunting for it http://www.qvsshop.co.uk/weed-control-fabric-63-c.asp . There's plenty of sizes to choose from so you shouldnt find a problem finding something to fit. Let me know how you get on and if you need anymore help as I've now done two driveways so dont mind sharing my experience. Hope that is of help. Good luck.

No problem. Just bear with me. My wife files all the paperwork and I'll ask her to find it when she is back from her sisters tomorrow.

I had the same problem last year and managed to re do my gravel driveway with the use of a heavy duty weed control fabric and its certainly done the job - I've a lovely driveway and not a weed in sight. If thats the sort of stuff you are looking for let me know and I'll find the receipt and let you know where I got it from as I bought it online and had it delivered on-site.

Advice on garden improvements

Posted: 23/02/2013 at 12:04

I thinking stepping stones or gravel going to the beds and to your greenhouse would look nice, assuming this would be placed towards the back. Either way, I would suggest from previous experience that you get some weed control fabric or simillar placed under whatever you lay so you don't have to deal with the pesky weeds later and have it ruin your creation! You could also use some mulch fabric in the beds to stop weeds here too. I used this site when I made some home improvements recently and managed to get a lot of what I need from them : http://www.qvsshop.co.uk/landscape-fabric-115-c.asp. Good luck with whatever you do and happy gardening.

Raised beds sound like a good idea, and I like the idea of an arch too. Looks like a great project. I gave my garden a bit of a refurb last year and my only pointer would be to make sure if you do gravel/wood chips in any areas, or even paving, get some weed control fabric down under it, so save you lots of de-weeding in the future! You can put it in the raised beds too if you do them. I found quite a lot of useful stuff on this website when I was re-designing my garden and it was all pretty cheap for what I needed : http://www.qvsshop.co.uk/weed-control-fabric-63-c.asp. Good luck!

Help with creating new border

I have to agree with Newcastle, I put in weed control fabric last year and pegged it down and covered in bark and I haven't had any problems so far - nice not having to continuously weed! I got mine from this site and it comes with the pegs included too so you can make sure it's really secured down : http://www.qvsshop.co.uk/weed-control-fabric-63-c.asp, I think they also do a thinner fabric. Hope it works for you too!

I had the same problem and didn't want to keep putting weed killer on those pesky weeds and shoots that kept popping up through the gravel, in the end I invested in a really good quality thick weed control fabric, and I haven't had any problems since. C.cross it may be an option if you want a solution that will last?
