Ah ok thanks at the moment I'm mowing in between them with a chordless strimmerThe grass won't hinder growth or flowering, but it will be very difficult to mow around them. I'd suggest weeding out about one foot all around the roses, putting in a barrier, and then you can string trim or even mow around the roses without damaging the trunk. Depending on the variety of rose (floribunda, grandiflora, tea, etc.) the rose bushes may grow enough to make shade and kill out the grass all by themselves!
Ok thanks there's a small bare patch around them from digging up the grass to plant them about 6-7 inches diameter so I'll make it a bit wider then, I didn't want to make an actual bed the whole way along because it would take alot of weeding, I would like to have a border somewhere in the garden though I might post a pic tmrw in daylight of the layout to get an opinion where would best suit for itWith respect of what MarlinGardener has said. Here in Britain we tend to cut an area around roses and leave it as bare soil. This helps to prevent diseases, particularly black spot in our usually damp atmosphere.
