The word goutweed makes me want to puke!

Don’t ever plant it!! Even if someone tells you it’s a good ground cover in a contained area! Don’t believe them. It looks okay in small quantities but will spread like wildfire and take over everything and it won’t stay contained either. It’s an invasive weed in Ontario from what I’ve read and I have a feeling my entire summer will be spent NOT getting rid of it.

I’m outside working today and have a before picture. Our backyard looks really brutal so I’ve got some plans to spruce it up. Hopefully before not too long I will have an after photo to show. And hopefully it looks significantly different than it does now.
