Well already i have learnt so much. Thanks for the kind replies, at least we know what we are dealing with now. We shall set about doing the things you have told us on here and at least keep on top of the problem. It seems that we are not alone. Great forum to be on and will be using it for further advice etc.. Thanks all so kindly. 

Weeds growing through weed fabric and gravel

We are complete garden novices. The weeds were removed before we layed the fabric down. It was quite thick and in one huge sheet. Not sure of the thickness. They do pull out easily, but there is quite a lot of them that have grown through.

Please see the picture of the type of weed growing through.

Would we have to take all the gravel off and start again?

Weeds growing through weed fabric and gravel

Hi there, we had some industrial weed control fabric layed down on a large area at the bottom of our garden.

We then had 2 ton of gravel placed on top if this at around 5cm depth.

We then have a trampoline placed on the gravel. The problem is it has only been a few weeks and the weed that has grown through is quite shocking. I thought by doing what we had that this would stop the weed. But its there and getting worse.

Please does anyone have any advice on what we should do? 

Thank you in advance.
