#9 Woodland Garden
The area on #9 dam which is a part of the woodland garden has been over run this year with a large crop of winter annuals including henbit and chickweed. We have sprayed most of this area with roundup, broad leaf weed killer and preemergent. We will then mulch it with our oak chipped mulch as soon as the weather dries enough for us to haul the material to the sight without creating significant ruts. To prevent this outbreak next season, we will have to pre-emerge this area in the early fall to prevent the annuals from emerging.
