I have a bed which I sprayed last October then covered with a tarpauling because it had ground elder and the likes well it has now been uncovered and the pesky weeds are returning . The owners want to turf over the old bed and plant Lavender at the edge.
Will any one agree with me that the course of action is as follows.
1 respray bed with a weed killer I have Glyphosate
2 wait 2 weeks for weeds to die
3 remover any dead weeds showing then cover with top soil to create a nice soft and even bed
4 lay turf in conjunction with the lavender
5 finally my concern is it is now the end of may so in theory we might not lay grass until end of June / beginning of July really best time is April or September to lay turf thoughts as always please thanks Lester
