I'm done with grass. First off, we're facing some serious water shortages all around the country, California and Texas being at the forefront. Secondly, our grass looks like poo poo. And finally, I hate mowing. So from here on out I'm either planting food in my back yard or low-to-no-water Texas natives in my front yard. I'm thinking native no-mow grasses, agave, succulents and other plants more suited for Texas conditions.
I have about 30 x 45 feet of front lawn. And what I really need is a circular drive to get my car closer to my front door. I'm so tired of standing in the street and dodging cars to unload my son's wheel chair and get him in the house safely. So this year, I'll be saving my pennies for installing a circular drive and filling in the rest of my yard with beautiful no-water native species.
