I’ve got a neighbour who spends about six hours a day tending to his tiny, urban front lawn. It’s a bit of a waste of space, time and water, if you ask me (though he’s got tomatoes growing in a thin strip by the fence), but gosh does he look proud.
A nice compromise between pure golf course green and wild brush is Fleur de Lawn – a seed mix that contains Ryegrass along with Strawberry Clover, Alyssum, Yarrow, Wild English Daisy and Baby Blue Eyes.
Okay, so it’s definitely spring fever. The non-sexy kind, at least.
