Best way to tidy areas outside of lawn, stop unwanted growth?
We have various trees, which surround the lawn, and in between these are areas full of unwanted shrubs and weeds. They have been persistent and a couple of gardeners we have spent a lot of money on have not been able to find a permanent cure to the growth of these unwanted plants.
The objective: To completely cover these areas in 'wood chip' or equivalent, over a layer of 'thick fibre cloth' or equivalent, to suppress and stop these growths permanently, once and for all.
So we will end up with a piece of square grass lawn, surrounded by woodchip (or whatever you call it), trees, and nothing else.
Ive quoted myself, because I dont know what the actual terms are, or what the materials are actually called.
can anyone lead me down the right path? and can anyone recommend any suppliers? Theres quite large areas to cover so Im guessing we would need tonnes.
