From the Forum: Growing a Patch of Green in the Backyard

Photo by Drew Hays


    While an attempt to seed a lawn in their new backyard was more successful than expected, there are still lots of patchy areas and homeowners are trying to plan ahead for next summer. Their budget won’t run to installing artificial turf so they are looking for suggestions on getting a walkable patch of green. The area gets a bit of sun so they are looking for suggestions on ground cover that has worked for others.

    Please chime in with your advice.
