  • Dandelions Instead of a Lawn

    Since the government has outlawed the use of chemical pesticides, our so-called lawn is a sea of dandelions.  I called around the other day.  Sure, the Weed Man talks about a weed-free lawn but when I asked him if he can get rid of dandelions, his answer was, “We’re working on it”.   What’s that?  Is that a yes or a no?

    I’ve been reading up on how to have a weed-free/chemical-free lawn.  Seems the best way is to switch to clover.  Now that I think of it, I remember my parents using a mixture of grass and clover for their lawns.  I think that’s the direction we’ll have to be going.  They always had a nice lawn.  Sure, they had the odd dandelion here and there but nothing to write home about. 

    There is so much to do to create a garden of sorts.  It’s a matter of priorities.  Patience. So, I’ve decided to post some pictures of plants that grow wild on the property
