My mother is replacing her grass lawn with white clover. She lives in a suburb of Chicago and has a postage stamp size lawn. The city was previously not too keen on 'subversive' lawn care But one of her neighbors is the infamous Pat Hill, author and owner of a prairie lawn in the city. Several magazine articles later the city is now very proud of thier local celebrity so now the white clover lawn will get mom a pat on the back instead of a fine.

If you are interested in a clover lawn here is a bit of information on white clover. http://eartheasy.com/grow_lawn_alternatives.htm#b

My plan is to put a white picked fence on the sidewalk, and then do what the heck I want on my side. WPFs create a visual barrier that are seldom breached.
 
I am going down to the lab. Do NOT let anyone in. Not even this tiny ad:
