How do I care for my plants when they are sticking out from weed membrane? I cannot loosen the soils around them, nor do I feel that I can feed them properly. The garden I have inherited is MOSTLY covered in this (except where it has broken away). They seem to have put bark on top of the membrane. If this is the cporrect procedure what is the best bark to use. The garden is mostly shrub, grasses and tress, but there are a few flowers and I'd like to grow more.
Although this membrane is an anathema to me the garden is .5 of an acre, so in a way it's a godsend. I'm used to conventional gardening and getting my hands in the earth, but my garden was very much smaller!
