We also spent part of the previous day ripping up the weeds at the top of the hill in the backyard in order to plant switchgrass. Hopefully, if it takes, it will be easier to maintain. We're laying black plastic over the area for a couple of summers to kill off the weeds and grass; then we'll try to establish even more prairie grasses.
