Ken & I spent the day doing yard work. We really don’t have much of a lawn. Who am I kidding? We have NO lawn. It’s mostly dirt, leaves and a few weeds. If we had more leaves, I would have left them because at least they would have been green. We pulled weeds, cut back shrubs and planted ground cover on part of the lawn. I would have done the entire front but, man…yard work is costly!
I’m hoping the ground cover will take off. Fast. We’ve sodded our front yard at least 3 times since we’ve lived here. And we’ve done countless number of plugs and some transplants from my mom’s yard. I think we’ve even tossed out seed once or twice. The shade from the oak trees is nice to have in the summer. On the other hand, all the shade they provide makes it next to impossible for grass to grow.
Here’s hoping the ground cover takes off and we won’t be “that house” on the block any more.
