Lessons in Lawncare

The key to a low maintenance lawn is loving dandelions. To begin with.

Embrace the weeds.
Learn their names.
Use them. Boast about them.

"Yes, that's white clover. It's a nitrogen fixer. Allowing clover to grow in the lawn means I don't need to fertilize as often (or ever)."

"A white blooming creeper? Oh, that. That's chickweed -- it makes an excellent anti-allergy eyewash."

"Dandelion pancakes anyone?"
