The "flower garden" in front of our house is absolutely filled with weeds and grass (that has grown up into it). I'm not a gardener, by any means, so this has been like a small bit of torture for me. I go out and weed parts of it, and then before I can even think about getting other parts finished, the weeds have grown back into parts that I've already done.
I thought one day, while I was out in the torture chamber, that I'd make a goal to garden every day for at least a half hour, and get it done. But then I realized I really don't hate myself that much. I just don't know what to do. If it was just maintenance, that would be one thing, but we're at the point where we just need to get to a place where it looks decent.
The thing is, our lawn is the worst on our street, and among the worst in our neighborhood. Not the lawn as a whole, just the part up by the house. I'm embarrassed. We need something that is low maintenance, because neither of us are the type of people that are going to spend a lot of time making our yard look pretty. I really wish that we had the opportunity to do everything from the start, because the people who had our house before us were not looking into what would look good long term, at all.
