Make It So....Bye Bye Lawn, Hello Frugal!
As my mind wandered along came a lady with two dogs -- an older black lab and a younger yellow lab, who was quite curious about my soundless mower! I smiled, getting a bit of a dog fix (I love dogs, one day?) and their walker lady said "I wish my yard were small enough for one of those" as she nodded towards my push mower. No oil, no gas, just blade sharpening in the spring and some sweat equity. I thought to myself, "well, then make it so. Join my in my quest to minimize the green lawns that zap us of time and energy!" Our front yard was once larger, but with each autumn a pile of leaves is strategically placed to kill the grass and create a rudimentary bed for plants.
Make it so, the upside of frugal is delightful!
