Like most homeowners cutting the grass every year, every week is not a favorite activity. If your lot has a steep portion to it, or a wet side, or even a bone dry part that hasn’t seen grass in 20 years, consider a new landscape design, and make much better use of these places one way or another. Why push the lawnmower over it every week when the grass doesn’t improve the design?
Consider building a retaining wall on that steep hill, one that provide bench seating, and possibly a small herb garden of potted plants. Transform that wet part of your yard into a well trained waterfall that you can enjoy even in the winter time. Waterfalls add tranquility unlike anything else, and they don’t have to cost a fortune to implement. Proper plantings will also help absorb much of the ground water and make that space useful again. Stone pavers are a great, zero maintenance way to venture into what was previously a dirty part of the yard that you avoided.
Catching rain water, and channeling it over to a dry spot has worked miracles in what was previously dead and barren.
