Ginkgo Tree Bed Tidying

bark chippings around the base of a ginkgo tree

The neglected bed under this Ginkgo tree has been dug over and all weed roots and bulbs removed to a depth of 1 spit. A couple of perenial weeds were dug out deeper. The bed edges were reinstated without enlarging the bed and the soil was profiled to try to minimise the steepness of the bed as it approaches the lawn. The bed was then left for a few weeks to ensure nothing unwanted was going to grow back. Two layers of weed mesh were applied and finally play grade bark chippings spread over the top to a depth of 3in (75mm) or so.
