    Question of the Week

    Mike: Is napalm an organic product? It seems to be my last resort, unless you can come to the rescue of a long gravel driveway that used to be about ten feet wide. Over years of weed & grass encroachment, it’s down to about 7 feet, and not even straight! I’d like to be able to kill off both the weed and grass enlargement while doing minimum damage to anything else, including me and the environment! Any ideas? Get the answer »
