You can get real busy with your life and neglect your garden for a couple of months and no one will notice or complain. Try neglecting your lawn—here comes the Home Owner Association! I confess I don’t have a lawn to mow, we live in a forested area and we never cleared the forest and replaced it with a lawn. The areas what are clear of trees are devoted to gardening. That’s the beauty of a garden. In a suburban type neighborhood it’s a little harder to achieve a lawn free home but we have customers who have achieved it!
