Thanks folks. Spent the day gardening. Not cause I like it but it bothered me not looking tidy Is there such a thing as a low maintenance garden with grass and flowers. Or is that just a dream

Yes there is!  Of course, I haven't put it into practice myself YET, but I've seen some pretty cool stuff in this area.  I"m out in a rural area in the midwest, and we have a number of organic and sustainable growers.  Each year they offer a "farm crawl" where average public like me gets to go out to their farms an see what they have going on.

My favorite tip\trick was to use newspaper the way most people would use that super heavy duty carpet-like stuff to stop weeds. Newspaper is biodegradable but will discourage the start of most weeds.  So you put down the newspaper in its flat form (not shredded), a few sheets thick, as much as you can in every nook and cranny around the plans you want.  Then you cover that with hay, straw, or grass clippings until you have a nice thick carpet.  This carpet will biodegrade thru the summer and be ready for tilling by Spring.  But for the growing season, it'll keep your desirables much more weed free than without anything.

Happy Birthday!

My new place in FL is small, about .2 acres (yay!) and I'm planning on slowly yanking out the grass and putting in local flora of various kinds.  I've already got a corner of the property not mowed to encourage bees, lizards and the like, but I've got to find the right size terracotta stuff to add in so they feel like they have a little protection.  Then all the lawn guy will have to do is weed out the grass!
