It has been over ten minutes, are you exceeding the wait times or stumped, if you are a little stumped perhaps it could be looked at and thought about and I could be contacted later, i just am asking to know?Mark

Hello AgainI posted my original question before 10PM and then at 10;14 asked if you were stumped or over booked and politely gave you a chance to say you could get back with me if you were stumped so I would not half to just sit and wait. Is that not as fair as a person could be in asking for a responce he just paid for?

Hi. Japanese Ardesia can be toxic to the kidneys if injested. Monkey grass is not significantly toxic but not a nice playground for dogs. Creeping lilly turf is the same thing as Monkey Grass (it also don't like to be distrubed by walking on it. May i know what currently grow on there as weed? Weed reveal a lot about what would grow well, you you have some pics? What is your soild, sand? clay? If both, in what proportion?
