Home is great but the work to maintain it sucks. Every spring, my yard becomes my sworn enemy. Let me clarify. The yard is fine, but it’s what’s on top of it, the weeds, crabgrass, dandelions, etc. are my headaches.
Whenever I toil in yard work, it feels like I am battling against nature. Let’s be honest. The weeds and others are plants as well. They grow to enjoy the outdoor, warm sun, and fresh air as much as anyone. Just not in my yard. That’s why I am out there pulling them out one by one.
And the work never stops.
Why not do “better living through chemistry” you maybe wondering? After all, lots of weed control products line the local hardware store shelves. All with wonderful promises. The simple answer is that I am against using chemical warfare on my lawn.
Not that it’s unfair to the weeds. I would use any leverages available, as long as they are environmental friendly and healthy. I like green lawn but no to the detriment of my health. Particularly, I am the one going to be immersed in my yard living & breathing all the same.
Any green thumb out there?
