    Cut it to 1/2" inch! ;) Brown is good.

    Or you plant a mullberry so it will kill your grass and make a yard full of wine.

    No wine here, but I do have white Mulberry schnapps in the works. More importantly, I just figured out why I can't keep that patch of my yard alive!

    We had to take ours down because as much as we liked the mulberries it ruined everything. The grass died off in a circle around the tree every year and smelled like rancid wine for a couple months. I wish we had more land so I could re plant one farther out from the house ! We do miss the berries.

    We had a huge, perhaps 5 feet DBH, mulberry on the property line when we moved in. It was surrounded by more wild raspberry than grass, and the large (12"+) surface roots made it tricky to mow around it. Unfortunately, it was taken down to make way for a neighboring driveway.
