    I also cut the bottom out of a 5 gallon pail. I place the pail over plant I want to spray, works as a shield for neighbor plants.

    Super idea! I've been covering the neighboring plants with 5-gallon pails in hopes of only spraying the one I want gone. I much prefer your way! Simple solution.

    So I can deal with the mess along the fenceline and hills.

    *sigh*

    As you can see, I am very behind on weeding....Even the driveway is now a sea of green.....

    All bald spots here were covered in grass, yes, walkway as well! =0

    Once I'm done pulling the grass up, I will remove some mulch, lay down one or two layers of the thickest black plastic I can find, cover with mulch and hope I can bake this mess down!!

    I may or may not start adding pavers after that. Certainly, there will be no more mulch all over. Hoping to make it all pavers with squares of empty space for the plants, those areas will have mulch. Maybe I can stain the pavers so they are less obvious, idk.

    This is what I'm thinking of. I'll move some of the plants by the drive over to the empty side so it's more even and so I'm not buying more plants. I can easily add plants later on by removing a paver, cutting the film and placing the plant!
    But pavers will have to wait, need to pay for bushhogging and fencing now.

    I bought a used brush hog off CL this spring. Loved it unfortunately so did my nephew, when I asked about it he told me, he makes to much money with it to give back :he:he I think I paid $100 it was in great shape.
