After mulching can the mulched brambles and ivy be put back on the earth without the change of this growing back?
We are clearing a strip of garden that has not been touched for many years. It is completely overgrown with many large busches, ivy and brambles. After it all has been cut and pulled away, we want to mulch the whole lot to reduce it in size. We are leaving the trees. My husband wants to put the mulch back on the ground but I am afraid that this mulch can still have something of the ivy and brambles that can help it grow back. I know that in the ground there are still roots of them and we have to keep that under control but isn't it better to throw all the mulch away to minimize the problem?
