How to keep paths weed-free
I'm new to the forum so don't know whether this has already been covered elsewhere ...
I've been growing vegetables in beds for a number of years on my allotment, generally using no-dig methods apart from when my husband gets over-zealous with his spade.
I am finding it more and more difficult to keep on top of the weeds on the paths that run between the beds - particularly couch grass - and was wondering whether to cover the paths with weed-suppressant membrane. The beds themselves are relatively easy to maintain, but it is a constant battle to keep the paths clear, and we have to be particularly vigilant to try and keep the couch grass out of the beds.
Does anybody have any advice on the use of this sort of membrane, and whether or not it is likely to be cost effective?
