Re: bermudagrass wars


50" a year?? Holy moley - it's a miracle it doesn't grow in the streets
and right in your front door. We average 35" a year, but we'll be lucky
to get 30" this year, 10" behind right now. Even w/ solid clay and no
rain, this stuff just keeps going.

I've got an island of it in my gravel driveway, but since Sugar likes to
lay on it (cooler than the gravel in summer) I just leave it. Fiendish
stuff.
