vertical weed barrier  Reply with quote  

I have an allotment and the grass paths around it have a lot of couch grass. I would like to put a vertical root/weed barrier in the ground between those paths and my vegetable plot in order to avoid having these weeds constantly coming back into my plot. I read another post advising to dig a trench but that is not an option for me. Would a simple polythene sheet put vertically in the ground do the trick? What other solutions are there in your opinion.. at the lowest price?

I doubt that a barrier will stop it, it is a very persistent weed, capable of going under/over/thru. IMO, a systemic root killer, such as Roundup, sprayed precisely on the path surface (use a vertical panel that yoo can move as you spray) to avoid over-spray onto crop.

The need for weed fabric can be eliminated by turning the soil over, which smothers the weeds and seeds by burial. I have done this many times and it is a lot of work. Herbicide can be used to kill the existing vegetation (without turning the soil), however weed seedlings may still be a problem for a number of years using only this method. A surface weed barrier would also be unnecessary for a new garden bed made by laying weed free sand, gravel, growing mix, etc. over the existing soil. It still is beneficial to use some sort of membrane to prevent the growing medium and native soil from mixing. This membrane will also help prevent any weeds that are capable of pushing through the thick layer of growing medium from emerging. Another reason I like weed fabric is because it helps keep my garden plants from growing into access corridors I use for maintenance or to cross a bed. The weed fabric helps keep them in place. They will still creep under the fabric and try to invade their neighbor's space, but it is easier to remove these few stems when the space where spread can occur is limited.

Never heard about natural weed barrier before, need to google this info, but .. is this legal? If I am not mistking, Medical Marijuana is the only legal cannabis product, and some cannabis oil, cosmetics, cremes and even candles. Just curious ..

As for the medical marijuana, I have to say it gives the best effect together with vaping (with special dry herb vape pen Yocan Evolve D ), not smoking. Vaping is smoother but still intense, it is safer and supposes no burning comparing to smoking.

In the fight against weeds and pests, many gardeners forget that it's very important for plants to have the right conditions for growth, including the right biosystem in the soil. If you are using natural or chemical agents to kill plant pests, you must take care to maintain the correct bio-balance with plant-friendly insects. I can advise you to read more about this in the article https://www.redbudsoilcompany.com/collections/worms . It seems to me that here you will find a lot of interesting information on how to take care of your plants in the best way.
