Lawn alternative of the day

I love this hell-strip planting on street with otherwise completely uninteresting front lawns. It is simply masses of violets (why do some people call them weeds?) and a small creeping sedum (of unknown identity -- anyone care to take a stab at IDing it?).

Here is a close up:

I love it -- simple, zero maintenance, and looks terrific.

oh wow that is lovely! I should show it to my mom *hint*hint* :)

Lovely...I completely agree with regard to the violets. They are far more interesting than lawn and I am always delighted with their spring flowering. I have tried to explain this to my dad but he still insists on striving for that almost surreal flawless carpet of green that cover so much of suburban Michigan. He is generally were environmentally-minded and all for going green but for some reason he refuses to accept that these lawns - with all the water they need and the massive amounts of fertilzer, herbicides, pesticides that they cause to be released into the environment - are actually much more harmful than more varied plantings.

Who says that a lawn has to be in someone's back garden. This picture proves that lawn beauty can exist outside of a persons home. Thanks for the post.

Like every other living organism, your lawn too needs a solid meal. The grass needs a complete fertilizer that includes micro-nutrients such as iron, copper and sulphur.

I'm not a motor guy. I prefer bikes, skinny skis, kayaks, skates, feet - most anything else. Even so, I've kept my usually pre-owned lawn mowers going for a few years. best affordable self propelled lawn mower

Wow....what a beautiful and lovely ideas !!!! A lawn mower can do many things

thomas white said...

Buy or borrow equipment for lawn mowing: If the lawn is less than 500 square feet, consider a reel lawnmower. This still-relevant relic is less noisy than gas mowers and simpler to use than electric mowers (the cord is a nuisance when using the latter). For larger areas that need to be mown, a powered mower is faster, and its mulching options or grass catchers save time on clean up.

I believe the sedum is dragon's blood sedum. I love it. It changes from red to green and back again depending on seasons and how much water it gets. It stays ever"red" in winter in zone 7. It puts out little roots on branches that you can break off and plant again or it will root where they come in contact with soil. Not at all invasive.

You should make sure the lawn care company you’re choosing is a member of business organizations. Being a member of these organizations takes commitment, both of time, thought and money. Lawn Care Conway AR

Hey there, I need an Statistics Homework Help expert to help me understand the topic of piecewise regression. In our lectures, the concept seemed very hard, and I could not understand it completely. I need someone who can explain to me in a simpler way that I can understand the topic. he/she should explain to me which is the best model, the best data before the model and how to fit the model using SPSS. If you can deliver quality work then you would be my official Statistics Assignment Help partner.

Hanna Bell said...

I don’t have time to look for another expert and therefore I am going to hire you with the hope that I will get quality economics assignment help .Being aneconomics homework help professor I expect that your solutions are first class.

Sarah Wilson said...

Just what I was looking for. I am struggling with my accounting assignment. I want an Accounting Assignment Help tutor to offer me two services. One is to complete my accounting assignments and the other is to provide me with online classes. I believe you are experienced enough to offer both Accounting Homework Help and online classes. I know you charge assignments based on the bulk. Tell me how much you charge for the online classes per hour.

Sarah Wilson said...

As much as there are discouragements, it is true that mathematics is hard. Like in my case, I was never discouraged by anyone about math but I still find it very hard and that is why I am requesting your Math assignment help. I am tired of struggling with mathematics and spending sleepless nights trying to solve sums that I still don’t get right. Having gone through your Math homework help, I am sure that I will get the right help through you. Please tell me what I need to be able to hire you.

Sarah Wilson said...

How much do you charge for a Statistics Assignment Help task? Take, for statistics assignment experts my case, where I need you to provide me with the Statistics Homework Help on plotting a scatter plot with a regression line? How much should that cost? Do you charge on the basis of the workload or have a constant payment?
