Weed or Plant? Removal Ideas
Built a new home on an existing piece of land last year after tearing down a home. The homes are around a "green" lake, so there has never been any fertilizing of lawns. There is an approximately 15'x8' patch of lawn that straddles my backyard and mostly my elderly neighbors yard. The patch is covered by the weed /plant in the picture that I cannot identify. It grows rather tall. My neighbor states that it used to flower, but no longer does. We wanted to tear it out an put down grass seed. However, after attempting to dig out the weed/plant, it appear that the task will be difficult due to the root structure. Any ideas as to what the picture represents and any thoughts on removal methods other than taking out about the entire patch by removing about 4-5 inches of the soil? Responses are appreciated.
Thank you kindly for your quick response!
