Old weedy Asparagus bed

Our new home has a bed of asparagus,but it is heavily choked with grass and weeds. Still, the asparagus is trying to keep coming, but not really enough at one time to eat. We love asparagus and would like to help it be successful what should we do? Dig it up and replant? Carefully try to pull all the grass out? I read you should remove the male plants? Thanks for the advice!

Douglas Fir

My Douglas Fir has bluish/ gray spots on trunk & branches. I've only lived on the property for 2 months. Looks like quite a few branches were removed on north-east side of tree. Is there any hope?

Powdered detergent and septic tanks

I have heard that powdered detergents should not be used if you are on a septic tank. Could you please explain this to me and direct me to some good written material on the subject (so that I can reference it to others)? Thanks!

ID teensy "native bedstraw" that grows & spreads in gravel driveway

Hi, No picture. Its leaves look a lot like gallium odoratum, but its clusters of 5+ leaves in a circle is a total of 1/6" in diameter, when starting out flat on the ground. Eventually it telescopes vertically, to about 6", though the structure is still very narrow, approximately 1/2 to 1", and very airy/spread out. It seemed unobstrusive, but it IS marching across the territory. I can see it came from the nearby park, growing in a worn walking path among the lawn daisies. A neighbor said, "Well at least it's native.". It isn't Our Lady's Bedstraw. Might anyone comment? I'd like to decide whether I should try to control it, not with chemicals.
