They All Must Die

If you have been to my place in the last 3 years, then you will know I have a serious weed problem, and that is has been getting worse each year. This year I'm taking care of business. I have vowed to kill all (or at least 95%) of my weeds. This is all new to me. I never have needed to take care of a lawn, and have never learned how, which is I suppose why mine has gone to pot.

I'm not sure if I'm doing anything right, but I gave the whole lawn a dose of weed killer this afternoon. I plan on hitting it every weekend until they are gone. I will have my vengeance on them. I will be victorious.

My only concern is that with the amount of weeds I have that once they are dead I might have a lot of bear spots. I'm not sure what my lawn/weed ratio is, but I would think 50% is generous. We will see by week end what is left!

Good luck with the weeds. We've been pulling dandilions with our "Weed Hound" and there are far fewer bare (almost spelled it like you did!) patches than I anticipated (and almost no weeds). The grass should move in to take over the newly cleared territory in a short amount of time. If not, throw down some seed and water it a few times a day and you should have grass in about a week!

I'll keep that in mind. I'm not really overly concerned about it, I'm sure it will all work out. I have some seed already, I'm prepared!

Du,
You said weed and pot way too many times in that first paragraph.

Weed trouble, huh? Have you tried mouthwash mixed with diesel fuel? Mary Thornburg wishes you'd get on MySpace.

mjon - I appreciate your concern. I know I have a problem, that is what this post is about. I need to get rid of all the weed in my life. I no longer control it, it controls me. Weed was the gateway, it was the gateway which turned my lawn to pot. I think I'm on the road to recovery, it is a slow road, but I'm taking it one day at a time.

Zap - Give Mary my email, I'd be happy to talk to her.
