eradicating poison oak
HELP! My husband and I moved into a new home last fall that the previous owners did absolutely no work to the landscaping. Because of this, the entire back yard and part of the front lawn has been taken over by poison oak. My husband cut down the vines last fall (and got a bad case of poison oak rash in the process). Now that spring has sprung, the vines are coming back. I've been pulling them out by the roots but there is no way I'm going to win this war doing that with the abundance of the stuff. Does anyone out there have a home remedy to get rid of the stuff??? I'm ready to buy contractor size amounts of round-up but would like to plant other things where it is and would hate to put that amount of chemicals into the ground. Any help would be appreciated!
