A tenant/previous owner of my property dumped a commercial quantity of old plants which had been tied to overhead beams with a non biodegradable string. The area is very messy with high grass and weeds. When mowing over the edge of this area with a ride-on lawnmower, the mower caught the strings which tangled around the blades and caused them to stop spinning.
After many hours I managed to fix the mower, but I'm still left with the problem of how to get control of the area (which I want to turn back to turf). I can still see string deeply embedded in the ground even in the cut area (indeed its such a vast net, that I am unable to pull much of it out by hand).
Any ideas how I can get this area under control?
