I have hoped that for years.

If it is dead I do not have to mow it. We have tents over the ground at the flea market at tractor show for three weeks at a time.

A week or so after they are gone one rain and you almost have to mow the spots.
Grass is hard to kill.

Finally got it done. I've never remembered a year doing it so late. The trees held onto their leaves until just before Thanksgiving, then it snowed 6". When that melted, the leaves were wet. Then it got cold and the wet leaves froze. Just thawed out again this week when we had temps in the 40s. For 50ยข in gas an 2 hours of my time, I saved $499.50, but will now have to put that towards car repairs.

Lucky you. Ours (including all my neighbors and a few accounts of mine) are visible, but frozen in.

They'll be there in the Spring... wink
