Low-Impact Lawn Substitute

You would never know from our rainy winter that last year everyone was thinking severe drought.   This was installed last year one of our driest years.

SOUTHLAND ECOLOGY LAWN MIX:  Improved Turf Type Tall Fescue, Strawberry and Dutch White Clovers, Yarrow, California Poppy, Pimpernel, Baby Blue Eyes, Creeping Thymes.

I love the outcome.  The Baby Blue Eyes came out the first year but haven't seen it this year.  It's a tough crowd.  The clovers, fescue and yarrow are dominant.

 After a few weeks

 Watered in the fresh compost and let set for a couple of weeks to activate the soil.  Bring it to life.

 Cleared the perennial grass and weeds and spread an inch or so of compost.

The drought parched front lawn.  It wasn't looking good.
