Spring is just around the corner. But for now, there's plotting to be done
Hey Dan....keep trying, even a small reduction. I have too much lawn (live in Australia, biggish yard). Plan is to extend existing beds outwards to increase garden beds and only have lawn "corridors" - particularly keen to increase the native garden beds I have and some perennial areas. Going to try the lasagna lawn conversion - hessian. card board, mulch/compost, leave 6 months, then plant. But have do it incrementally so as not overwhelmed.
Congratulations on the new job Dan! Sounds like a perfect fit. I’m looking forward to seeing how your garden develops this year as well.
Planning and buying seeds is so much fun, I am in Australia and our summer can be harsh, so when I am not in the garden, I am planning and buying seeds for Autumn and Spring planting. I too want to reduce my lawn area so I am looking forward to reading you progress on that. Well done on the new job! Sounds exciting and quite a privilege.
So looking forward to watching your garden grow and change.
Just a thought from a parent and now grandparent though - a small patch of lawn can be perfection in the outdoors for little ones to sit, crawl, learn to walk, and finally to 'imaginate' on, while the big children (ie adults) dig and clip away at the borders...
Congratulations on the new job. Sometimes the best changes come from within the institutions 😉 Can’t wait to see all the garden plans come into being!
Congratulations Dan. In print again.
Congratulations for your new job -- what a nicely subversive move! 😉
I'm excited for your backyard garden plans – post lots of updates!
And most importantly, CONGRATS ON THE NEW JOB! AMAZING!!!!
