I really like the look of a yurt but the high wind do pose a big threat. The yurts with the dome on top is cool to catch a peak around the property while in the loft.

I like to use rock salt for vegetation killer/control. I use the rock salt pellets or make a brine ( rock salt in a barrel and add water to solidify ) mixing every few days to help break it down. I use a watering can or sprayer to apply to my desired area. Hope this helps it works for me on a smaller scale. And if the weeds or vegetation is stubborn I use rock salt directly. Good luck on your journey friend keep on growing........

I know a lot of it is because of soil degradation from overgrazing the native grasses there and am working on controlling the grazing there better but I really want to get the prickly-pear gone again. We didn't have it until a few years ago and it is spreading more each year. The standard answer I get is to use Surmount on it or a mix of a couple other herbicides, but I am trying to cut all chemical fertilizers and herbicides out. Only thing I can think of is a shovel party every few months and burning them.
Do you think it is the thorns on the goose berries?

Gonna try White Clover and sub-clovers, but read they might not be good for Goose/Currants. Goumi works good too also for this edge and deer resistance.
