We started 2012 with high hopes for turning our weed filled yard into a beautifully landscaped area. We started out the spring by meeting with a new landscaper who came highly recommended on the internet. He had an amazing vision for our yard. However, his amazing vision did not take into account that I told him I wanted little to no mulch, absolutely no annuals, and little to no maintenance. Instead, we got at $30,000 quote that included over $2000 worth of mulch and meticulously planned flower beds that would need a fair amount of attention.
Since we didn’t happen to have $30,000 laying around, we decided to put the yard on hold and try to formulate a plan to DIY it.
Instead, we did nothing. We let the weeds grow freely, and grow they did. Let me assure you, our neighbors LOVED that.
