A Round Up of Round Up!
When you put a lot of effort into your garden, then you want it to show. Roundup are always there on hand ready to help out, whether it be with their weed killer to get rid of those pesky infiltrators or like us to help with a tree stump and it’s roots.
We had a large tree growing down the garden and it was causing a blockage so much of the light coming into the back of the house that we decided, after a great deal of thought, to have it cut down. I think the tree surgeon who came to do the deed said it was an ash. It was in the garden when we moved into our home almost 28 years ago.
Having had the tree cut down but we decided not to have the stump removed, as we thought we might like to make a feature out of the large stump, but we needed to stop it’s roots continuing to grow. They had started coming up further down the garden as new shoots. Round Up kindly sent us a bottle of their Stump and Root Killer to use for this purpose.
It looks so much better then when Grand Dad Al started. We have been having “visits” from the two little dogs next door, who seemed to like using our garden as a toilet. We have now put some chicken wire in between the two garden to stop them! Their owner didn’t seem to be too bothered when we asked her to control her dogs more. With having the grand children visit, that is the last thing we need in the garden, dog waste!
The Round Up weed killer has done a grand job on both the front and rear garden. The weeds are no more! Grand Dad Al got a pump/spray to use with the weed killer and within a day or two you could see them turning brown and dying.
We are not expert gardeners, but like our area to look neat and tidy. We have a few plants/flowers that come up every Spring including my favourite Blue Iris. I love these flowers as they where what Grand Dad Al bought me when we had our eldest son. They hold a special place in my heart and I think they look amazing when they are out.
I also have a crab apple tree that blossoms every Spring. It’s so pretty and the bees seem to love it as much as me.
Overall I am very impressed with how the products worked. Will update the post about the root problem as we go along but so far so good.
