Greener Grass

This is what happens when freshly turned soil meets several weeks of steady rain. This part of the front garden was excavated to replace our old sewer line which had succumbed to years of root invasion. Unfortunately, there were obviously a lot of weed and other grass seed in the soil and it seems that every last one has sprouted. Luckily, the soil is also quite friable and the plants come out easily. There is still a lot of work to do, though.

I have a few more troublesome areas like this, but once the rain stops they usually take care of themselves as they don't get any irrigation. I might take a few moments and lay out some newspaper and mulch to kill the grass and prevent the sprouting of more. That seems to have worked well in the past.
