How to clean out this mishmash?
I let this go too far and now I don't know what to do to clean out all these weeds. First off, know that the very thought of possibly encountering a snake in all this makes me nuts. I have only seen one tiny snake and one dead 3 ft black snake in the over 30 yrs I've lived here but I know that this kind of growth probably sings their song. Soooo, no way I can venture into the middle of it. It has poison ivy, some in the middle of things like some of the monkey grass that I'd rather not kill but will sacrifice some of it to get rid of the poison ivy. In the past, poison ivy has been all alone and not nestled among other plants so I sprayed it to kill it. I have VA creeper, which won't hurt me, but I'm not about to put my hands in this mess. I could hire someone to weed whack it all but doing that won't KILL the poison ivy and as I said, I'd rather not weed whack the monkey grass but I can if necessary because it'll grow back. So I guess my main concern is how to KILL the poison ivy without killing the monkey grass. I'd like to pull up all the stuff I don't want but I wonder if there's a way to find someone willing to do that since I'm not gonna. This is metro Atlanta, BTW.
