My brother has just installed artificial turf in his back garden. It seems ok.

I sit in it sometimes, but a man comes once a month to do all the actual gardening.

You can get some decent artificial turfs these days but the installer needs to know what they're doing. Very easy to cock it up and end up with gaps where weeds can pop through.

My neighbour is too old to do his garden so I mow his front lawn and try to do some of his back garden for him. It's still a mess but it is at least not a total jungle. Fucking brambles, nettles and bindweed pop up everywhere. I filled his green bin with nothing but brambles the other day. Fucking things. easiest thing to do would be to nuke the lot and start again

Did the instructions talk about fitting a weed control barrier underneath the fake grass? Might be worth pulling it up and doing it again if they have come through that quickly. Screwfix do the stuff for about 40 quid for 1m * 100m role which is probably as cheap as it can be brought. You can buy larger widths too, and even large rectangles of the shit (generally more expensive). Ideally it should be done with as few overlaps as possible.

Clearly not if they are coming through already. freshly shat seeds in bird poo wouldnt take hold if there was nothing for them to grow in
