Over in this thread we discussed the use of Pour on Rubber to go around the pathways of my vegetable garden in order to suppress weeds but due to the costs and other unknowns I'm now considering synthetic grass to do the job. As a rough guess, I'd estimate about 30 - 40 lineal metres of synthetic turf would cover most of my pathways around my vegetable patch but buying locally is starting to look quite expensive with Bunnings for example selling between $29 - $60 per metre which is over $1000 at the cheapest! The $29 stuff is 10 mil thick and that's probably all I need for this purpose; however, online here on eBay OzPlaza is selling a similar synthetic grass for under $7 with free postage making the cost for 40 metres less than $280 and this seems very reasonable to me! There are others I'm looking at - namely ones with a 15 mil pile that I'm thinking might be better than the 10 mil here's the search results on eBay AU. There are some warnings about being aware of poor quality synthetic turf and I guess this is always an issue when buying online because you can't actually see or feel the product but I reckon at these online prices the local hardware store is just a rip-off and I'm buying mine online. If anyone has any experience in buying or using synthetic turf feel free to offer any recommendations or advice. I'll update this post when I make my decision on what to buy.
