All winter I've had some membrane over a grass path I wanted to dig up. I lifted the edge today and the grass is still alive under it  >:(

Weed killer here I come  >:(

Is it not suitable for lifting as turves and stacking to rot down?
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

I suppose I could but it means losing top soil and there isn't much of that at that end of the plot ::) Best laid plans n all that!
