But the weeds (like Charlie Sheen) ... are ... winning.
I've hand-plucked weeds from the rocky areas MANY times in our 17 months at this house. I have used a few different types of sprayable weed-killer to no avail. I'm flat running out of options and feeling like it is a losing battle.
The other day, while weeding, I pulled out this one ...
I had Savannah (my almost 6-yr old) put her hand/arm on the table
so you can get an idea of the scale/size of this weed.
And now I think I know why nothing yet has worked. The above-ground part of the weed almost wasn't big enough to bother pulling out. But once I carefully unearthed it I was SHOCKED !!! Look at the length of those roots! No wonder fertilizer and topical sprays aren't having ANY effect!
Feel free to comment with your tried and true suggestions for ridding my grass of these unsightly weeds. I am truly open to any suggestions!
