Depends how fussed you are about your borders being tidy. I mow with the grass box on (strim beforehand if I am going to), and then mow the lawn. Anything that doesn't get picked up, gets left.

Thanks for your help, BUT,if I leave the grass in the border,it grows again, quicker than the lawn.

Not the cut grass Tem was referring to, Roy. If you have grass growing in your borders, turn the soil in the borders over where the grass is and pull the grass out.

you could try that roundup gel...we had those horrid prehistoric horsetail ferns, you stick it on em and it takes about 28 days but they die and dont come back and it doesn't affect any other plants

I used the gel for the first time this year: OK, easy to use, and it does work, but nothing like as good as the roundup liquid which I also use, and have done for yonks.

Years ago. {I'm not saying how many} My grandad won prizes for his garden, he always scraped the grass out of the borders. He made a little tool that he tied on the end of a broom handle. Dinner forks came into it somewhereI think. Too long ago I'm afraid but you get the drift Roy
