Unfortunately the fill used was loaded with some kind of crab grass or something. It got like 6 or 7′ high and was very thickly stemmed, growing like crabgrass. Anyway, I messed up and should have not let it get high, etc. I don’t have a lot of money to rip out the soil and do it over, so I wanted to try and crowd it out somehow. Any ideas on what would be an early growing, aggressive native grass or even a perennial (NY Hudson Valley) that could attempt to start crowding this out in Zone 5? Thanks so much!
