Nasty grass update

This is nasty grass I do not know it right name bit it trying to take over so I am trying to clear it we have some fennel at the back I belive it broze fennel but not sure

Trying to take the bindweed and bramble out as well as I have some in the backgarden

You can just see the marigolds  through the grass its hard work but will be worth it when it done

I have one wheelbarrow full already but I will not be composting it here as I do not have a burning area

Came in for lunch then the heavens open just as I had finshed getting the washing in whitch was good






We managed to take it to the tip on Saturday I planted my new tree on Sunday

Weeping willow once the pond is up and running it will look lovely in years to come

my ground is so hard to dig i planted my new plants that i brought yesterday this morning  and it was so hard but there in still need to weed the grass out  but it getting their slowly

    That grass does look nasty. If it weren’t for the marigolds, I would be tempted to put black plastic over the patch and kill it off rather than use more labour-intensive mechanical means.

        You could try greens manure to help break up the soil – I understand rye grass is a good one, though that is sown later in the year.
