Hi, I've moved into a new house which is riddled with brambles :@ I know
they are hard to get rid of and I'm after a quick and easy solution to
have the garden ready for my kids top play in this summer.
I have a few ideas on what to do but I would really like a pro's
feedback to these ideas, some may seem stupid but I'm new to this so
take it easy on my outlandish ideas please :D
Our garden is covered in loads of little stones (probably a whack idea
from the previous tenant to rid them of brambles) but it makes it hard
to dig the whole of the 22sqm area I want to work on.
My ideas are to cover the area with plastic and maybe some chip wood on
top of that but I hear brambles can also grow through things like that
and chip wood isn't exactly ideal for my clumsy 4 yr old boy as he'd be
in an out every 5 minutes with a new cut I'd imagine but I may be wrong.
My other idea was to lay some plastics down in 2 or 3 layers to make a
little harder for it to come through maybe get some top soil on top of
that and turf it.
I'm at a dead end with the garden as digging seems to be impossible due
to the stones, is there anything I can do and will the above work?
P.S I'm not keen on the idea of using weed killer either as these
brambles are coming all the way through next doors garden and I am
worried if I use a strong enough weed killer it will effect her garden
Help please!! CluessWilson
