Cumbria, United Kingdom
Any thoughts about using old carpets to cover bare areas in my vegetable patch. Do you think it is a good idea and what would be preferable natural fibres or synthetic ones!! I did use one once and it broke down very easily and made a real mess-can't remember what sort it was though! I have a vague recollection of someone telling me that it was a bad idea to use carpets in the veg garden....also any thoughts about covering the compost heap-carpet/cardboard/old plastic tablecloth or indeed carpets again!
