    I walk by the area often and see it’s overgrown from the first weed-whacking. Unless you are willing to spray to permanently eliminate the noxious weeds and growth, weed whacking will be a forever, unending project. Even spraying will take several attempts. It’s not an area for edibles, so spraying seems sensible, unless I am missing some critical reason why not to spray.

      Hi Cyndy. We have had two rounds of spraying the vegetation, last fall by a professional and this spring to knock back the sprouts. CalFire is also on board to help keep the area clear. This Saturday is to mostly address the poke weed, sprouting buckeye, and berries. We will indeed spray again, but this effort will keep the growth down.
