Using carpet as mulch.

Please please please don't use horrible nylon carpet as a mulch and then lay down organic mulch on top. The carpet never breaks down and you end up with nasty plastic strands through the garden.
When the idea first came into being there was plenty of woollen carpet about and felt underlay was easy to find at the side of the road but these days most thrown out carpet from bulk waste has nylon through it or it is completely synthetic.
Please check before laying it down. You WILL regret it.
