Brand new to all this!
If I'm posting in the wrong spot, please let me know!
I'd like to begin to reclaim a few plots in my backyard. I know I'm a bit late--but better than waiting (again) for next year, lol!
The first thing I need to do is get the weeds out. What is the best way to do that? I have tried using a trowel in the Spring--but I really didn't know if I was getting anywhere. Now I can see that I didn't get anywhere, lol! I'm absolutely over run.
The patch I want to tackle this year is about 25 feet long, three feet wide--it's between the side of the house (beige stucco) and a concrete paver walk way. It faces South.
We have heavy, dark and thick clay soil.
I put a few extra boards we had lying around and just threw them on top of the vegetation to try and kill it. Was that a good idea? Should I continue with that or just get them out live?
Secondly, what's the best time of day to do this? It's a spot that is in full sun most of the day, even in the morning....but I notice that there's too many bugs in the evening.....
Thanks for your help!
