Keeping a yard is hard work.....
I'm probably not your norm when it comes to my yard. I like a pretty yard and I want everything to
be trimmed and the grass mowed. When I say not norm, that means that I like the yard to be mowed
a couple times a week...Sometimes it's hard to get it done just once a week but twice is certainly nice.
We have really been working in the yard this Spring and it is beginning to take shape. I took some
big. Well, Sam started trimming them yesterday afternoon and I can now tell you that they are no
bushes are now cut down to nothing. I'm thinking that they
surely will come back out. We have so much more to do.
Who could possibly imagine that underneath those tall
bushes were lots and lots and lots of dead leaves.
Hidden underneath those leaves was some poison oak!
Last year I saw some of it coming up, but I decided to take
matters into my own hands instead of asking the
professional Nurseryman that lives with me. I got out the
sprayer and added what I thought was just a little bit of
Round Up. I filled that sprayer full and went to work on that poison oak with a vengence. It was a
little windy that day, but I never thought twice about the wind. The next week, my neighbor called
and it seems that the wind navigated some of my Round Up over her way. I would say that probably
about two feet of her beautiful grass had turned brown...Oops, I had made a bad mistake and I knew
That Sam was not going to be that thrilled with me.
Oh well, the grass has almost grown back but Sam decided that I didn't need to be the one in control
of getting rid of the beautiful plant that makes you itch this year.
He cut down the bushes so that we could get all the leaves cleaned out and so he could kill out the
