Clearing weeds from a paddock
I was hoping that thi sis the best place to get advice on my garden
i have just moved to a new house which has an acre of garden / paddock. Previously this was a well mown lawn ; but as the house has been empty for at least 12 months it has been neglected
as well as long grass, it has large brown/ brush lije things which are about 2 ft high. My friend says that thery are last years docs that have gone to seed - this makes sense as at the base in new , green growth
i am after advice for
a) immediate suggestions on how to clear said docs ; and if they are how do i stop coming back. My friend suggested Grazon as a weedkiller which i Googled but am a bit worried as there is a pond at the bottom of the garden (the garden slopes down to)
b) any suggestions fpor getting it back to its 'former glory' ? i plan to buy a lawn tractor
Many thanks. Any suggestions, tips would be appreciated.
at the moment it is a bit daunting and i just do not know where to start !
