I want to get rid of the grass.
Howdy! I am hoping someone here can help. Between the drought issues and our business demanding more and more time, I am wanting to get rid of the grass out front of our house. It is such a little place to mow, but it grows fast and we are often gone 2 weeks at a time. But, (there is always a 'but') my husband can't "see" what I am talking about. He loves the neat green expanse the grass gives. Can anyone post some pictures of their grass-less fronts? I currently have an image of ivy/pachysandra with a new curving walkway, lamp post, and a couple of lower maintenance perennials, but I need ideas also. Everyone else on our block has grass fronts/few trees, so what I do needs to remain understated and our house faces north and we are have rather long winters, so year round color is also a need. If I can show my hubby your success stories, maybe he'll be convinced. Thanks!
