i have a dead pampas grass and want it out. people say burn it but it is in close proximity to the house and other plants, any suggestions



Dig it out - its not an easy task, but not impossible either. Last one I did took me about 2 hours as I recall... and it was a very large one. Burning won't kill it anyway, it responds to being burnt by growing rapidly if there's any life left in the roots.

Lol, even worse than the pampas was the thick vinyl pond liner I discovered 2 feet beneath it and stretching 4 feet either side of where the pampas had been...
