Gravel - weed suppressing membrane or not?
Finally decided which bits of the garden will be gravelled. We have weed fabric but not enough for the areas being gravelled. Was going to order some more but while out walking the dog, passed a garden that had once been professionally landscaped but then left for at least 15 years. Anyway, local gardener was in sizing up the job & we said hello & then he said that he wished people wouldn't use weed control fabric as it made his job hell. I couldn't stop & chat but now I'm wondering whether to use the fabric or not. What are the pros/cons? Are any types better than others? What are the alternatives - just put the gravel on bare ground??
