I have a large herbaceous bed which needs the normal sort of care and weeding. At the front ( facing the house ) it has a timber edge which keeps the soil from falling on to the gravel. But to the rear of the bed there is grass, and I have a constant battle to keep the grass from taking over the rear 24" or so of the flower-bed. It's not scutch or anything like that, just ordinary grass which uproots easily. I don't know if the ride-on mower disperses grass seed as it cuts ?
I don't think a kerb would solve the problem...I'm wondering should I plant something like a box hedge to keep the grass at bay?
Does anyone have any ideas ? I would be most grateful if so.
