Over the years I've concentrated on removing more and more lawn in my yard. The idea has been to create a more garden-like atmosphere as compared to a typical suburban yard. Pathways and plants have taken the place of most of the turf grass during the last 5 years. There is still a peaceful green carpet of grass in the back yard where the grandkiddos play ~~ although many stray balls land in the plants these days since the size of the play area keeps shrinking.
In one of my recent Lowe's Creative Ideas articles I discuss the plants I've chosen to border some of the pathways. You can click here to read it. At the bottom of the article you'll find a link to a YouTube video I filmed which will give you a 'live' view of parts of my back gardens.
Go check it out if you're curious and then come back here to let me know you did. Or just leave a comment there!
Happy gardening! Meems
