CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Deadline - April 15, 2016


I was at Lowe's searching for a solution to get rid of a very overgrown area of pachysandra in my backyard. They suggested I contact this group in search of advice.....I don't want to use chemicals which may harm other vegetation or potentially wildlife beside the pachysandra, but we have a very wide area overgrown with this plant. We are trying to figure out if there is something we can use to rid our yard of this plant, that is not a chemical, and preferably not having to actually dig it up. Thank you for any help or suggestions.
