    Twenty years ago we moved to this bungalow and I laid a membrane over the front garden which was supposed to block the growth of weeds and covered it with six inches of gravel.  Over the past couple of years green leaves about five inches in height have pushed their way up and I have to keep hoeing them and I know not the name of the pest and I know that I didn’t plant them.

    Apart from getting a digger in and removing a foot or so of soil, laying another membrane and covering that with gravel is there a better way of stopping what has become a pest?
