    Our bamboo is a shrub with white flowers and red berries, just looked it up & is called -heavenly bamboo nardina. Love it!
    We used to have 7 acres- the 4 acres were in the back. The land was part of a 100 acre farm broken up in lots. Ours was 350 wide by 1100 ft long. lot only thing we did to that was keep a winding walking trail on it. We trimmed around a few trees that were in the middle that paths went around. Also kept them trimmed too. It was so nice walking that off and on. I did all the tractor mowing after I retired. Kind of miss it. But, hard time consuming work!!! I'm a city girl too and Always wanted to live in the country- well got my wish. I would never do it again- especially here in FL!! Talk about hard work- doubly so.
    It was hard to leave that place after living there 19 years. We even had a creek run through it and we made a bridge to cross it, for our driveway. Yes, I even helped dig and haul rocks and raked gravel. Ugh. He built the wood on the sides and it was really amazing if I must say so myself. It lasted for almost 15 years. Until flooding rains caused the creek to swell and become a rushing small river. Damaged it, and we had to do repairs.
    Don't work too hard. Be careful. Hope you get back to your walking trips soon. I have to get going on doing that. He has a vacation coming up - 10 days starting the 5th. Can't wait!!!!! emoticon emoticon

    When in Ohio, there was a deer with antlers, about 4 foot tall in our back yard, years ago. He was sharpening his antlers on our small tree, just tearing it up. Grrrrrrrr No he couldn't be in our back 4 acres, where there were mature, huge trees, no, he wanted to pick on our 5 ft. tall 1 year old tree we planted!!!!! So I walked out the back door thinking I'd shoo him off it, before he killed it. He moved toward me and lowered his head and starting pawing his hoof into the ground. Ooops. I slowly backed up and went back in the house. I always thought deer were nice! Must have been rutting and I guess he was in a bad mood that day. emoticon
    They used to come in a tear up any flowers I would plant. Or maybe it was rabbits. Could never keep anything planted unless it was something they hated.
    Squirrels are bad too about digging things up, like most bulbs. HA-why would they say Homeowners should realize that complete eradication of dollarweed from the landscape is not practical." They recommend "limiting the infestation to a tolerable level." Yeah, as you said good luck with that. We are getting all our weeds from the forest and pond area-every kind you could imagine. We just gave up and I think we may have about half our our St. Augustine and Bahia grass intertwined in there somewhere with all the dollarweed and vines. Grrrrrrrr
    I can't remember the name of the Bamboo plant we have in our backyard. But, you can buy them down here, they are gorgeous and planted everywhere. They turn red in the fall.
    Well, I hope all your hard work paid off and no more bamboo.
    Your trenching brought back memories of all the hard work we did on our 7 acres in Ohio. Bob dug a drainage ditch all around our house, and down the side of our 800 foot driveway. Used a rented trencher and hand dug a lot of it in areas that he couldn't use that. Plus, had to put the pipes with holes in it and gravel and dirt back in the trench. I helped where I could. We worked off a lot of Calories in those days!

    That weed probably is in FL. The worst one here is Dollar weed. It's everywhere and nothing kills it. Grrrrrr
    Our yard has soooo many weeds , we hand pull the tall ones. We are next to a pond, so we won't put out weed killer. Maybe just spot spraying some of worst of them. Happy weeding and trenching! I'm trying to talk Bob into ripping out those rug junipers by our carport, the hiding place that snake came out of. We'll see who will win in a couple weeks, during his vacation. emoticon
    emoticon want to replace them with Gerbera daisies.
