Are you sure its drying out? The top can look dry and even crack a little but stick your finger in and it maybe moist underneath.

If deemed necessary to cut back now is the best time for a Magnolia. They don't like it much so cut minimum necessary.

Found one in the middle of my herb garden once when weeding. Frightened the life out of me. Thought it was the head of a snake, which is obviously the intention. Nature is sooooo clever

LOL archiepem!

See the main difference between a cat and a dog is dogs sleep at night and cats don't. Are they meant to be shut in all night? Are we meant to stay up all night following them around? How would you deal with that? 

I wear gloves when working. Its not nice to grab a pile of cat poo but every job has its drawbacks and in the grand scheme of things I can think of worse things.

There is also the fact that glyphosate may kill what is there but it won't stop more weed seeds turning up and germinating. Covering really is the best bet tho not necessarily the quickest way to deal with it. As others have said take your time

For the pot grown ones check for vine weevil grubs in the soil. They do love them.
