The last couple of years have been tough with my allotment as the weather, work commitments etc have restricted the time I can spend on the plot. I am therefore finding it difficult to keep on top the weeds. Other plotholders have started to use membranes after digging to help stop weed growth so that come the spring it is not such back breaking work. I'm finding it difficult to find something that is good enough quality to last but not too expensive. Can anyone recommend anything?
I had thought of a couple of large tarpaulins but wonder if this would simply harbour pests too much but most of the weedproof membranes I have seen recently is either far too narrow, far too thin or far too expensive. My allotment is 6.6m wide and over 125m2.
