Laurence, in our conversation, I failed to emphasize that the allopathic 
effects of  grass was greatest at germination and first emergence. I 
usually scuffle off the grass at an inch or two height taking care not 
to expose  weed seeds lying a deeper depths. So I set the tool to 
undercut the grass roots, perhaps 1 inch deep.

Thanks for the good conversation.
