I have never had such a horrendous lawn as I have at the moment.
It's dry enough on a good day to put the piggies out but we have got a real buttercup problem .
The last couple of years , I've either put a mat over a small patch of non-piggie weeds or dug them up with a sharp knife. But if I do that now, I'll have no grass and my back won't talk to me
I'm doing some online browsing but I'm guessing "Animal Safe" means your cat or dog can walk across it, not allowing a grass eating small animal to eat it.
I'm drawn towards those blow-torch weedkillers though......is that my only option? Burn the weeds, hoik out the frazzled bits, repeat as required? OK , the lawn will look a bit fugly, but grass recovers, eh?
There are two adults on my neighbours garage roof , but last night I saw a small fox (not sure if it's one of this years cubs already) sitting right outside my pigs door (Pigs have a wooden Playhouse )
I yelled Gerroutofityoumangeygit as I roared down the garden arms flailing. Luckily the NDNs are used to my fox-related outbursts
That's another thing to worry about - weeds and foxes.
