I just joined your group and I'm hoping to find some suggestions here.
I live in Northern Kentucky and I am about to take on a fairly large
My husband is recently disabled and I work full time and I'm really not
wanting to mow a lawn for the next 3-4 months!
My plan is to dig up the front yard (the yard is very small), then
replace the grass with some red rock. I'd like to plant a few
flowers/plants around as well and I am wondering if anyone knows of
some good plants that will look nice throughout these hot and humid
summers we have here in Ky?
OK. I have 1/4 acre. Mine takes 90 minutes with a walking mower at medium
speed (it's bumpy land). If your main reason for turning lawn into garden is
to save mowing time, I'd say stick with the grass. A garden will require
more than 15 minutes a week to keep it nice looking.
On the other hand, lawns are really boring, and don't belong in most
climates to begin with. We inherited the stupid lawn tradition from the
British, whose climate is more suitable for grass. So, should we continue
talking about converting grass to flowers? :-)
Yes, definitely converting....I agree, grass is boring! I love flowers
and foliage and for some reason, spending time to take care of them
doesn't bother me.....but mowing and taking care of a grass
lawn......it's a real snoozer for me! lol Not to mention, the 'grass'
in my area is basically crap! Very weedy; I'd just asoon get rid of it!
