Weed suppression

Mypex weed suppressantThis is what I would have finished last weekend if I’d had time: laying weed-suppressing fabric around my shed. A necessary evil; I need a clear area here, and endlessly weeding/digging it isn’t realistic.

This stuff’s called Mypex, and it’s industrial-strength. Much better than the consumer version they flog in garden centres, and highly recommended if you can lay your hands on some.

Although it’s hardly a biodegradable product, it’s better than using carpet – which slowly breaks down and leaches chemicals into your soil.

I’m just wishing now that the weather would pick up. Everything’s so far behind; still no asparagus, though we were eating it this time last year.
