[solved] How to get rid of heaps of long grass.?

growing weed control Question by : How to get rid of heaps of long grass.?
Down behind our shed is a narrow gap the lawn mowers can’t fit down and the grass and weeds have grown out of control, I have weed killered it and it’s now dead but still really ugly and I’m worried about fire hazards and snakes. What is the easiest and safest way to get rid of heaps of dead grass?
I’m not sure where you are, but here, we have the top 10 most deadliest snakes roaming around and I’m in a high fire prone area so I’m pretty eager to get rid of it. In 2009 we had the worst fire rip through our area and Killed over 170 people and destroyed over 2000 homes and properties, and since then smaller spot fires just randomly around. So fire IS very well an issue.

I have a few overgrown heaps like that.
I am going to remove the entire lump by digging it out. One large one, about 18″ across, came out very easy.
Then smooth the dirt out.
As for the snakes…they are great. You will be lucky if you are fortunate enough to have snakes on your property.
They eat a lot of the other critters that we really don’t want around.
Save the snakes.
Fire hazard..NOT an issue. That’s silly.

  1. We don’t know what tools are available to you and what you are capable of doing. I use a weed-eater to keep areas from becoming overgrown. A hoe might work to beat it down then rake it up or turn it over. It might take some work but in the future you might be able to treat it earlier and keep an eye on it so it’ll be an easier task.
