What The Previous Owners Did!

It will be a good idea in the future but right now, it's a pain in the butt! The previous owners decided to plant a whole ton of little ever green trees around the perimeter of the property as a snow break and I just spent the last hour cutting the weeds out from under them. I think that I'm going to need to choose 5 trees at a time and get down on my hands and knees to cut away/clip all of the weeds. If I'm not careful, I am going to have that horrific back ache that I had last week. That is the last thing that I want!! It just takes a little planning!

Do you have any old carpet? I cut big circles from old carpet once, a smaller circle out of the middle then slit from the outside to the centre. These went round the base of the little trees and helped keep the weeds under control.

Yes, wise idea to take it easy, those backaches can be pretty nasty sometimes. I overdid it this morning and feel it now.

Sounds like a big job to me. Glad you will limit your work to a few a day.
