Use scissors and cut like hair. Use a net skim off cuttings. You can add
this to other rocks, leave floating or sell. You should only have to tie it
once and then trim. We all slack off on that and need to re tie it. No big
deal. It is work tying it down. You can try other methods such as hairnets,
wedging in between things like hairgrass or under leaves here and there.
