Weed control

Had a guy come to collect some used silage sheeting which is something i often seem to be giving away once i have finished with it seems very popular for covering empty ground on allotments to act as weed suppressant until spring i personally have never bothered doing it and just spend an hour now and then pulling out what weed pops up, and it seems this year as if the buttercups are having a good winter, I have thought it might be useful put on about mid March being black it would absorb the sun's heat and perhaps bring planting time on a bit sooner (any one got an opinion they would like to share). Spent Saturday removing some awkward boughs from a couple off trees sawed them up with the hand saw and stored them away to dry for firewood in 12 months time, it was good to get stuck in to some practical work after having to deal with a bunch of civil servants on Friday, are they programed to be awkward and unhelpful? or does it come naturally to them either way they have a knack of making a simple enquiry seem like rocket science as they never seem willing or capable of giving a straight answer and oh they are so busy and can we get back to you probably in about a month as i am finishing early and need to get away. These are the same bunch that tell you how to do everything but don't have a clue how to do it themselves, i only rang because it was lashing it down with rain and it seemed a good idea quite honestly I wish I hadn't bothered it would have been more productive plodding on in the rain.
