WANTED: Non-Chemical Blackberry spray?
We just moved to a home on 10 flat/rolling acres with build up of blackberry bushes in some areas. A gentleman just came out to let us know that he has been spraying & harvesting hay from the land for the last 20+years. We'd like to continue letting him harvest, but without chemical spray. We want to maintain our land as chemically-free as possible. Does anyone have any ideas to make this a win/win? We want to remove the blackberry bushes & plant gardens, orchard, etc. anyone know of a safe way (other than brush-hog or destroying the soil) to get rid of the blackberry bushes taking over? Thank you!
