that IS green. ours is still mostly brown, even after the recent rains. i am pretty sure it's dead.
It's the park by my house on the way to the secret trail. And the sun was behind it, I swear, I didn't make it greener!
I miss green grass.
Have you guys got any rain down there yet? We finally got a little bit here but too late to save my yard :(
Exactly the case here. Enough rain to make my rain barrel overflow! But the grass in the front yard is toast. After endlessly planting seed and nurturing it to a lawn, and two occasions of buying sod and starting over, I swear I'm going to have artificial grass put down and landscape with potted plants. I'm finished with this grass heartbreak.
I would totally xeriscape if I could afford the initial outlay of new plants and rocks!
New word! And now I've seen lots of photos to go with it. It's kind of what my step-grandmother did. I guess everything old is new again.We did have half our yard in rocks with cacti a few years ago, but then all the cacti died. But I'm leaning toward going back to that. We have to have some surface for the dogs to run, so I have ideas in my head for mixed synthetic grass and plants in pots (I have more success with pots than our soil, though our flower/shrub beds are doing okay). But I can't get much enthusiasm for it from the two men on the property. You'd think they'd jump at the chance not to mow and water all the time.
There are such lovely native plants that would do so much better than grass. One of these days, one of these days.....
