removing "weedproof" membrane
Hello, I'm new here and it maybe this thread has already been done - please point me at it if so. I have bought a garden (with house attached but who cares) with really masses of so called weedproog membrane that I need to try to remove.
It has been there so long that it is now a mat of weeds growing in bark mulch and rooting into the top of the membrane plus a horribly fascinating tangle of ground elder roots underneath that have broken through the membrane in places - mainly where really strong things, like plum tree suckers - have made holes.
It's also on very sticky clay soil.
Any ideas or experience anyone could share please.
