Help me out here guys, I have a client with a holiday home on about 4 acres that I look after. They visit a handful of times per year but won't leave the electricity (and therefore the water) on between visits.
There's enough moisture around for the weeds to go nuts but grass struggles on most of the property except for a few damp spots where it gets pretty lush.
I don't even know whether to mow or spray any more. I've been doing a combination, mowing any tall grass then spraying weed'n'feed over everything else, but it just isn't working. Today I gave up after an hour (normally I'm there 2-3 hours) because my tyres were encrusted with khaki weed seeds.
What else can I do? Just roundup the whole place and hope that wetter weather lets the grass come back?!
i've tried telling them many times that they need to fix their irrigation and leave it on a timer for the grass to crowd out the weeds, but I get nothing back from them.
Don't really want to give them the flick as they pay just fine, but I'm running out of ideas and to be honest it is becoming depressing. I had to stop at the carwash today and try to wash the khaki seeds out of the tyres but they wouldn't budge, so I'll have to get a wire brush onto it.
