If only follows your nonsense, others have pointed this out to you recently, when will you finally realise that there might just be something in this :?:

I have been lurking for a while and have only just recently started posting.
To be fair 'despair' I have winced at some of the statements you make as fact.
You should research your subject matter better as others have said or just keep schtum and let others who know better respond.

Thank you for the responses, I will try cutting as advised and will take pics which I will post when some improvement (hopefully) shown.

That one has quite probably found a defective drain!

Roots are adventitious and will go wherever they go to find moisture and nutrients, with the amount of compost and water you claim to be putting on the area I'm sure your neighbour and his trees are delighted...............but of course with your slabs on edge remedy (was it 18" or 2' - you claim both?) there should be no roots!

A good gardener works with a situation not against it.

Got rid of your bellbine yet?

That is the best advice I have seen on this forum yet.

You would all do well to heed it.

Definitely no drains or other source of water near these particular conifer roots

and no columbine anywhere in sight either
