Huge weeds from woods
Hey all, not sure if this is the correct forum to post in but I have a question regarding weeds.
I live in North East Pennsylvania (poconos to be exact)
I also live on the border of a private and state game lands so I literally have the forest on top of me. The property around is mainly trees, dense forest, boulders and not much ground cover.... except around my property. I have a few areas of woods that cut in by the driveway. Anyway over the last 8 years I have battled with the weeds, trying to get a look to the property that I believe now I just cant get. Also we have started to go very organic, no chemical fertilizers, pesticides and as of this year no chemical weed killers.
My question is, without using chemicals what would be the best way to tame this. I don't want to rid them and tilled is out of the question as other than my lawns the property is pure rock (takes half a day to dig a hole for 1 fence post)
Would you recomend trimming them with hedge clippers, mowing them over when they get to a few feet high. I kind of like the natural look but when they start growing taller than myself (6'2) it worries me that maybe its getting out of control?
EDIT: the weeds I am referring to are behind the composters.
