Black plastic for weed control !

Have had black plastic down in our organic orchard now for a number of months to control rampant kikuyu grass. Yesterday the plastic was moved to new areas of grass . The photo shows the result. This method is particularly effective in dealing with the aggressive spreading runners of kikuyu and is a good alternative to using chemical sprays. When the plastic in the foreground was first moved, a 60 cm tiger snake was under it near the biggest clump of grass. Of course, when I rushed to the house to get the camera, it was no where to be seen on return ! That's wild life for you.... Very careful where the hands went in pulling out runners for the rest of the afternoon......
