What you’re never told about landscaping

When you bring in some fill-dirt to modify the shape of your yard, one thing you’re never told is that there are dormant plants and seeds just waiting to pop out. Since our yard has been done I have seen a number of plants (and weeds) in our yard that weren’t already there and weren’t planted as part of the plan. Some of them are interesting so we give them a chance, but some are bad like new types of grasses and weeds we never wanted. I think the best of the random things to pop up are the variety of green onion that has popped up. The worst? There weird incredibly fast growing very large leafed plants that are are tough to kill. I think I’m going to have to dig them up because even RoundUp has been ineffective so far.
