Or berberis cuttings, unfortunately it's such a large area. If I ate that many oranges and lemons i wouldn't be out of the toilet long enough to spread them Laughing Laughing

Grass clippings can be used for weed control at the base of your hedges, whilst retaining moisture and adding organic matter/nutrients to the soil. For best results spread no more than an inch or two depth of weed free clippings at the base of the hedge avoiding its main stems. Do not add any more clippings until the previous batch has broken down.


Thanks for the post GPI.
I just put my beech hedge in around Feb/March and are about 2-3 foot in height.
Would these trees be too young for this mulch?
Is there likely to be any negative impact on the trees by using this mulch?

no there is unlikely to be any adverse effect unless you put a layer thicker than 2 inches on
