The only way I know of to get it out is to brutally dig down and pop the ajuga clump right out of the ground.
Then I gently separate and shake the area where the grass is until I can grab the grass clump with all the roots and pull it out. I always wear gloves to do this, but it was too difficult to wear gloves and snap a photo at the same time.
Once I pull out the grass, I lay the clump of ajuga back and move to the next section.
It's a very labor intensive job.
After a couple of hours of digging, cutting down and hauling loads of debris from the main gardens (halfway through I brought out my new BIG wheelbarrow),
I brought a blue chair out to the wagon wheel garden. While playing with a twig basket of kale and some colorful orbs, I got an up-close view of my fully opened tulips.
Speaking of tulips, look at this one from the rockwall garden. Have you ever seen anything like it?
I don't know where the paint brush-like stripe of red came from.
I brought the cordyline out to get used to the sunlight. It gave me something of interest to rest my eyes on as I was cleaning out the beds near the road.
Later in the afternoon DH power washed the deck (I helped a little. It's a fun job and he likes to do it, so he only let me do a few sections).
He also power washed the metal table/chairs. Now there's some patina!
There is still plenty to do, the worst of which is solid staining all that white lattice and deck railing. HATE that job!
