We have leylandii trees bordering our garden and behind them are silver birch, our lawn is now over run with saplings and tree

burrs/roots coming to the surface. I would like to remove all these saplings and dig a trench to stop them growing in the lawn. Could do with some professional help to assist with these issues. The leylandii do not belong to us but border the garden. Our lawn has got worse over the years with these saplings attaching to the roots – it’s like a mini forest. I want to put a border material down to stop the roots from growing in my grass, please help.

You will have to contact the local agricultural extension services in your country for this one! Digging a trench near a neighbors trees will likely damage them, resulting in legal trouble, which we can’t really help with.
