My "environmental" reasons are these kate:
the soil under the membrane becomes stale, inaccessible to birds, and devoid of air and sunlight. . There is no working with nature, is there?
You asked for "suggestions". I took the time and trouble to do just that. Sorry my reply was not to your liking. Someone else will have a solution you prefer
Not aware you meant to remove "an entire lawn" Kate. You only referred to an " incredibly weedy walled veggie garden"
I mentioned glyphosate specifically as a "one off" solution because there is "no way (you) could hand- weed the beds......." Glyphosate can be environentally friendly for sure....here I used it for a couple of years to eradicate bindweed, nettles and oxallis. Now I rarely use it as these weeds are long gone. Had I used a membrane it would still be in place.......
