ideas for hard-to-mow spot
I am looking for ideas to make a change in my backyard where I step off the deck. We just put the deck up last year. Because of a rock wall, the lawn there is very small....and hard to mow. I use a rider all I can, and the curve of this rock wall, and the space I have, just doesn't let me get close enough to the edge. I considered ripping up all the grass/dirt in this area and just making the whole thing a mulched planting bed with a path. I don't know...I have a lot of cannas just waiting to be planted outside when it stays warm, could maybe plant them there? I will have my basjoos growing alongside the deck (right side of the pic...lots of weeding to do!)
Any ideas? I have a log swing I wouldn't mind "hardscaping" in so I don't have to move it to mow, and although it would fit in that corner, I think it would just look too big for that spot. I would love some ideas. I love green grass....but I don't like weed whacking! And with this plan, I could have the mulch go right up to the edge of the rock wall, and maybe slow down the weeds that grow there as well. The second photo is a straight on shot, kinda shows how small the area is there.
