Agree, I think I live in a neighborhood of competitive house and garden upgrading. I am certainly the poor side of the street....I certainly will not water the grass, so I then have to cut it...although this year the grass seems to have gone away,
Man I gotta come up to Pets and see all those flowers in the woods while I play golf! And of course see your 'landscaping' efforts. Maybe the first week of June?
No one really sees my landscaping but ones who visit. Just trying to replace weeds and invasive species with grass and wildflowers.
It's like a hobby of mine I guess. But it's like gardening on steroids.
I am around early June but check first, bring your suit for the hot tub!
Sauna AND Hot Tub at the Shahbazians? Spa living in southern Wisconsin!
Did you ever get a tree expert to look at your massive old oaks, and determine what was necessary to ensure they live another 100 years? Pruning? Cabling? Fertilizing? For my money, those oaks are the most impressive landscaping you've got...forget the grass and wildflowers.
They have been there for 100+ years, I am sure they will outlive me. I helped by getting rid of all the buckthorn competition for water. My huge limb that went down last summer might of been because the tree was so healthy and the leaves so heavy.
