Oh dear!
A warm welcome to the list, BUT have you been following the recent 
thread on chemicals?
When I want more space, I put down a heavy mulch of newspapers, manure 
and straw, and the weeds underneath die out thoroughly.
For those with difficulties digging, you might be interested in my 
method for planting bulbs. Put down a layer of newspaper and manure or 
compost, with a little soil on top (I import soil as we have next to 
none here) stand the bulbs up where you want them, and cover with the 
desirable depth of soil. It's a good idea to mulch the top to prevent 
weed growth from the imported soil.
