Hi Warren, your post made me chuckle, as I got monkeygrass coming out of
my ears, too!
I have a large island area in my front 'yard'. My island is larger than
most folks city yards, lol, and it is about half surrounded with
monkeygrass. It could circle the island three or four times if I would
thin it, but frankly, it's so thick that a full grown copperhead could
be in there! It's right next to the rock wall and I am simply afraid of
all kinds of creepy things.
So I will also make the offer, except here it is a you dig it
