that. This result happened in only one day. I brushed Roundup on some liriope volunteers over two weeks ago and they're just now puny and can be easily pulled out of the ground, but none are truly DEAD like in this photo. Will this be safe, do you think, if I put it on liriope volunteers and other weeds in my front yard? The yard has tree mulch, no grass, but lots of hostas, some hellebores, ferns, azaleas and other things. Guess I'd need to spray directly onto the potential victims, or brush it on with a sponge brush?

the reason weeds do not die instantly is that the vinegar or round up is absorbed thru the

I barely have space for one car in a 2 car garage. Going to erect a 10'x16' Lowes metal shed
on back of property for riding mower, wheelbarrow, garden wagon, turkey cooker and propane tanks, weed eater, chain saw and garden tools and chemicals. Maybe she will then let me put my p/u in the garage too :>)
My wife attempted to remove the wallpaper in our guest bathroom ---scratched the
surface,sprayed it with remover and started removing 30 yrs of paper( 4 layers ) only to discovered that the wallboard was not sealed before the original layer. As she peeled paper large portions of wallboard gray surface paper came also---down to the thin brown wallbd paper. I thot I could skim-coat it but the water in the "mud" bubbled the brwn paper. So I gave the wall 3 coats of Shellac to seal it from moisture. Since the wall had such an uneven surface, I applied a wallboard mud(thinned w/ water to the consistancy of very thick paint) with a textured roller and a brush (for the corners and edges-stippling it on) We got a soft stippled surface that covered up all the missteps. Painted it and receive many compliments on the unique look.
in this area that like full shade,and wet red clay any suggestions?I want to plant these on either side of the bridge.Ive got azaleas in part of this area but they are growing very slow.

Native ferns along the creek. Dead nettle (lamium maculatum) is a great ground cover--spreads
with underground stolens--can be invasive down here in the south but Round-up easily controls it. My two favorite var. are "Beacon Silver"(leaf is silv.grey w/green margins or "Anna Greenway"(green & chartreuse leaves).
beds.. After some research I realized its the result of decomposing roots from a problem maple tree I removed almost three years ago. The mushrooms are good for the lawn because they're helping decompose all of the old roots but yes, bad for kids and pets if the mushrooms are poisonous.
