Raised beds

I have raised beds in allotment.   Quite deep.   Fought with weeds last year. So this year planning to line them ...... however.  The soil is really good    Shame to lose the depth??    Not sure What to do now  !   Help

    What are the weeds you're having a problem with?

    I don't understand the query either. Lining raised beds doesn't alter the level of the soil or prevent weeds.

    Do you mean using a weed barrier on top of the soil, Potwoman?

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • Sorry for confusion.   I have couch grass from the  edging paths which creeps under the  sides of the beds     Another plot holder advised me to put  weed suppressant over the base of the bed
