Carpet around fruit trees
I am looking for cheap/easy ways to keep the grass down around my 15 or so fruit trees. I have an excess of scrap carpet. Will putting circles around the trees cause problems?? The trees are of varying maturity- from 1" to 4", and include citrus, apple, stone fruit.
When I search It seems the trees do better without grass around them, but them people say organic mulch is 'bad'. I would love to avoid damaging the trees with the riding mower, and maximizing their growth/productivity.
Anyone have any experience, ideas, suggestions??
