I started out just raking under the clothes line. Some long grape tendrils kept catching the rake near the arbor.
I murdered the 3 vines.
The arbor was put up for me. I wanted grape vines to crawl all over it for shade and maybe a hidey hole for kids to use their imaginations. Not for grapes to eat or use.
Others had different ideas. I did hang LN's swing from one end years ago. But otherwise every time others went under it they complained about vines sticking down in their way or just flat snapped off anything they felt like. It has become a pass through walkway to arena and where I started parking some years ago because my spot was taken over by "treasures" ie: junk. Whole other story...
Now no one can complain.
If they come back, good. If not, fine too.
Now about the blisters I have from yanking and breaking vines?
