Wow! That DC backyard is spectacular!

Been no-mow for 2 decades.




Tara Turf came along soon after. (Why not copy the historic landscapes of Italy?)

Testosterone-On-Wheels made gardening 'landscaping' & commodifies all they touch.

Don't get me started on annuals from plugs & the environment. Self-seeding? YES !!
