You would think (as do I) you would be better off cutting them down then spraying them but I have tried spraying them with leaves on and it worked well too. Just curious your thoughts on that.

Thats a hefty size load on your gooseneck.

Those houses look great.....I hate when the builders/masons dont cut the curb for a driveway like those. Its like droping off a ledge everytime you back out.

Partially yes. The benefits for weed eating them down is that you don't have to come back to pull the dead weeds.
