Q.A Yard Mess

Anonymous added on June 17, 2014 | Answered

I cut my Bougainvillea many weeks ago and, unfortunately, I left a bunch of thorny branches, clipping a few at a time and discarding. Someone picked up all the branches, put them in a pile and now the grass has grown over them. I think I will try to kill the grass by spraying vinegar and then continue to pick up the branches beneath the grassy mess. Any one have a better idea?

Use a brush and pan to get rid of the remaining smaller pieces. A good strong pair of gloves might be useful too. As Christy Moore advises: ♫ Don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work ....
