I have to start my 70 square meter garden from scratch after erecting a new fence and felling three 35f tall leylandi. The lawn is gone in its place only weeds and hard grass are growing now. Somebody advised me to take off a fine layer of soil, lay a weed preventing material over the whole area, and then cover it with top soil and turf to have a low maintenance garden. I knew you can lay a membrane under paths and patios, never heard under lawn. Anybody has ever used the method suggested? Is it effective? I cannot see it would prevent superficial weeds growing all the same. I would appreciate your comments.
