I am an avid gardener with experience in all kinds of home gardening including rain gardens. I like pruning and garden layout. I am science based and your answer will include website references from a University (preferably U Minn) when possible and from other reliable sites when necessary. I I do not have experience with potentially relevant pesticides and herbicides but will refer to non-commercial academic sites that may suggest them.
