Questions about hay
The previous owners or builders put down hay as a weed block over newly exposed dirt when the house was built about 10 yrs ago. From what I can tell though, the hay had gone to seed before it was laid and each summer a fine crop of hay grows. I am trying to get rid of the hay as, in rainy yrs, the hay grows about 4 ft high and blocks everything else from growing. I'm not here in the summer so I can't stop it from growing but I am trying to pull it up now. The thing I don't understand is...the hay doesn't seem to have gone to seed this yr...no seed heads...so is it possible that if I can pull most of it up by the roots I'll have a good chance of eliminating in one season? Or is this wishful thinking?
