keeping back yard woods under control
After 13 years of letting our wooded back yard just "be," we are working on making it more usable. We had a landscaper help us clear out all the small trees, larger logs that had fallen during hurricanes, vines, weeds, etc. It has been a month since we cleared things out, and the smaller trees and vines are starting to grow back. So, we are not sure how to maintain what we cut back (I tried weed killer, no luck). We will landscape a lot of the area around the newly installed swimming pool, but not sure what to do with the natural wooded area.... do not think grass will grow there, maybe a blanket of leaves will make the area look nicer, but what to do with the re-growth? Would a quality gas operated trimmer keep things cut back?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
