Thanks so much for advice tried it on my front lawn today could not believe how much couch was there, when I raked it it all stood up to get chopped off,  can you tell me how it works exactly, does it weaken the root system and eventually die. many thanks

I had the same problem, the woman would shout and swear at her kids they have all turned out the same, as a last resort I sold up and moved 4 years ago and have never been happier and I am making my new garden even better than my last one

I have a lot of couch in my new lawn, I was digging it out but have small patches everywhere, I am now trying to pull it out as it has not had the chance to deep root.  I think it must be from seed when I dug the ground over. any advice would be helpful. many thanks.

Mine is very boring, I support a football team who play in blue and my name is Janet.  I now wish I had taken the time to think of something else.
