Deal with pesky weeds be­fore you create your herb lawn

Herbs & Superfoods - - Grow Your Own Herb Garden -

Re­sist the temp­ta­tion to take short-cuts. Clear the area of weeds be­fore you es­tab­lish your lawn or you’ll for­ever be pulling them out. Lift the turf with a spade to a depth of about 5cm, then dig over the whole area, pulling out the weeds. Add com­post or grit if nec­es­sary. Work this in. Leave to set­tle, then spray with Roundup two weeks later to tar­get any emerg­ing weeds, or dig them out, en­sur­ing you re­move the roots as well.
