It should be alright. Sand and muck where a swamp head and dry ground intermix.

How long did you leave the plastic on, skyeagle?


My neighbor was fussing about nut grass when My Father and I stopped to visit. My Dad told him how to get rid of the nutgrass. He told him to fence the garden off and put about a 1/2 dozen shoats in there.

That would probably work, hogs love those nuts. Wild hogs come through here once in a while and they'll plow through twelve inches of bermuda grass roots to get to them.
