Please offer lawn suggestions
I currently have a a lawn in my front yard that needs work. It has old mulch and weeds keep growing.
I am looking for the following.
1 - Maintenance free. That probably eliminates sod since I don't want to mow.
2 - Something that will reduce the chances of weeds growing once the material to stop weeds is put down.
3 - Something that will repel cats in a humane way. There are some stray cats in my area and they are pooping in my yard.
I'm thinking a combination of some kind of stone and a few maintenance free plants would meet my criteria.
Please also offer you suggestions and things I can currently do to repel cats.
