Under fruit trees an area of about two metres diameter can be kept free of grass and weeds to prevent competition to the fruit roots. This can be kept free of weeds with old carpet or black polythene or it can be sprayed with Roundup keeping the spray off the tree stems.

Plum trees generally need no spraying.
